DCIRS currently has a diverse and skilled team of staff members. Please reach out so we can find the perfect fit for you!



Managing Director

I am the proud owner and manager of DCIRS Community Care. I have worked in Aged Care and disability for many years and as well as managing the business, I also work as an enrolled nurse within our local health facilities.

I have two teenage children and I enjoy playing the guitar and singing.

Donald has been my home for 13 years and I love the community environment of living in a small country town. I realised there was a need for services and decided to give back to my community by founding DCIRS. I am looking forward to the future and being able to support many more people to remain independent at home, and provide more sustainable jobs for the community. I am passionate about making a difference in others’ lives and hope that the business continues to flourish so that all community members who need assistance can access it.

Audrey Head Shot


Community Support Worker | Administrative Assistant

My name is Audrey and was lucky enough to join the team at DCIRS Community Care in October 2022. I am friendly and outgoing, energetic, motivated, I love goals and challenges, meeting people and travelling.

I live in St Arnaud with Tessa and Bella my two dogs. Since immigrating to Australia from Scotland, my education and working journey has been amazing, reinventing myself for my next journey. I was working data entry and computer operation moving into accountancy, then headed back to university studying Aged Care and Disability.

I decided it was time to leave Melbourne get out of the rat race. I purchased a farm in Greens Creek (just outside Stawell) where we ran South African Boer Goats, Stud and Commercial farming for the meat market. We were the 3 rd biggest Boer Goat farm in Victoria. Prior to covid I sold the farm and went back to Scotland. During covid I did a refresher course in accountancy not knowing where my next journey would lead me to.

Then DCIRS came along and here I am – happy and loving my job. The staff, clients and participants are great to work with, making my job worth jumping out of bed each day.
