Juliet immigrated to Australia at the end of 2013 and joined the Key Employment team in April 2014.
Prior to immigration Juliet worked as a contracted freelance Qualified British Sign Language Interpreter, having previously worked for a Deaf Society in Scotland for the past 10 years. As an interpreter Juliet has had the opportunity to work within many different industries such as medical, educational, legal and employment services to name a few.
During her time in Scotland she worked closely with Disability Employment Officers to provide and improve employable services for deaf people. This is when she discovered her passion and talent to educate and promote accessibility to all those who experience disability or injury. Juliet believes that with the appropriate knowledge, information and support anything is possible.
When Juliet arrived in Coffs Harbour she worked briefly with TAFE providing support to students while she studied to achieve her Cert III in Auslan. Juliet has transferred her skills learnt while working at Key Employment and continues to promote accessibility to all.

“If I have trouble with the work given I know my teacher at Key will sit down with me and talk me through the work. Key Training has given me the retail skills which will lead to me getting a job.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
