Meet the Team - Lisa Ridley

27 November 2023

Meet Lisa! She has been working for selectability for the last 18 months, and recently took on the role of regional coordinator – Charters Towers.

A Charters Towers local for the last 28 years, Lisa has a wealth of experience and understanding of mental wellbeing and suicide prevention across the region.

 “I have spent the last 18 years working in the community services sector,” Lisa said.

“I began as a support worker, went on to admin and became the roster clerk for many years.

“I then came to selectability in the role of LSW for a short time before securing the role of team leader, until very recently where I was very fortunate to be chosen to take on the role of regional coordinator!”

Lisa’s career progression is bolstered by her passion for the mental wellbeing of others.

“I love the difference we can make in a person's life; I love to see the joy on a person’s face and the light come back into their eyes.

“When you love what you do it is not a job, that is the best part!

“That’s what prompted me to seek a job within the sector as well as personal family experience - to know there are people in our community that are struggling and need the help we once sought is what bought me here.”

When she is not overseeing the growth and implementation of services in the Charters Towers region, Lisa likes to spend time with her family and friends, reading, and mosaic.

A lover of her community and the people in it, you might find Lisa swapping sandy beaches and windy coastlines for a quiet fish on the shady banks of the Burdekin River.

Lisa’s progression and knowledge of the Charters Towers region not only makes her an asset to selectability, but promises a positive future for the expansion services in the region.
