"My goal is to have the resources both personally and within our agency to provide assistance where needed at any given time."
This gives me great job satisfaction.” As Lifestyle Centred Service’s Director, Karl also oversees the financial operations of the company as well as meeting the demands of the 24-hour emergency response line.
Karl believes Lifestyle Centred Service’s strength lies in its ability to face challenges outside the box and to continually achieve what other agencies cannot. Providing direct support to clients and playing an integral role in improving their lives is what Karl finds most rewarding, and he believes personal contact is the key. “Being a real person, if only at the end of the phone for our staff, clients and associates at any time of the day or night gives them confidence that there’s always someone available to assist no matter the problem.”
Karl’s ten-year career with the Victorian Police Force, combined with almost twenty years in the disability sector has equipped him with the experience and insight to understand the unique needs and expectations of clients. As well as having fundamental knowledge of the operational side of the business, Karl’s hands on style of leadership has seen him take on numerous roles within the industry from a direct care support worker in disability and youth services specialising in behaviours of concern, to full time foster carer to numerous children, and manager of a care services agency, before launching Lifestyle Centred Services.
A devoted family man, Karl has managed to strike the right work-life balance to enable him to assume the role of stay at home dad to six children between the ages of 8 and 22, while steering Lifestyle Centred Services to new levels of growth and professionalism.
Although Karl sees himself as a duck on a pond – all the action happens under the water, while above remains serene – it’s not all about work. Residing on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast, Karl relaxes by spending quality time with his family, including fishing, four wheel driving adventures in the local bushland, exploring beaches and gardening. “Most of my free time is spent with my family, taking enjoyment from the day-to-day things.”
