Meet the Team - Jackie Inwood
Meet Jackie, she is approaching her 7th year at selectability, working as a program coordinator in the Townsville region.
In addition to overseeing operations at the popular Mental Health Hub in the Townsville CBD—a safe and welcoming space for consumers to participate in a wide range of activities—Jackie also coordinates the selectwellbeing program.
“My role also entails managing various block-funded programs within selectability, as well as supervising a team of 20 employees who provide group and individual support to more than 250 consumers,” said Jackie.
Playing an instrumental role in the lives of many, Jackie’s passion for her work stands out as an overwhelming standard for her team.
Her dedication alone is reflected in the stories of the consumers she supports.
Recently, consumer Shane reflected on the impact of the Townsville Mental Hub on his life and his newfound love for art.
“I am proud to be part of an organisation that is strongly committed to providing support for our regional and remote consumers who may not have access to the necessary resources for their mental health and overall wellbeing.
Born in Mount Isa, Jackie had an active childhood, beginning her working life in the hospitality and mining industry.
“I eventually relocated to Townsville and transitioned to the disability support field, which ultimately led me to my current role in the mental health sector.
Since first joining selectability in 2017, Jackie has progressed through multiple roles, including lifestyle support worker and service navigator.
“I've always been personally intrigued by the mental health and suicide prevention field.
There can be no doubt that Jackie’s progression as a leader in the last 7 years at selectability is a testament to her tenacity and drive for the highest quality service.
It is with this that her legacy is not measured in her years of dedication, but by the countless lives she has impacted in the Townsville region and the strength of the team she continues to lead.
