Meet Our Team
Bronwyn Gowing B.Ec, Dip Ed
Families, advocates and carers provide the inspiration for me at SWARA as they did for Pink Twins Moyia and Dorothy O’Brien over 43 years as they served our Brisbane community. I have the privilege now as Senior Executive and former Manager, to aspire to provide even a small token of the Loving Service environment they provided, in which every person can achieve their full potential.
Everyone has a spark of love in their heart and at SWARA we turn that into a flame.
Our skills-based Curriculum provides pathways to independent living and learning, social and economic inclusion.
United around the Twins Vision of modeling ‘Loving Service’ for Queenslanders of all abilities, our participants bring out the love in all of us in a safe, happy learning environment. You are welcome to visit us to experience that love in action.
I started as a volunteer in 2010 and shortly after I was hired as the administration assistant. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Diploma of Business Administration. I enjoy working at SWARA because I get to witness firsthand the results of our staff’s hard work evolve into rewarding outcomes for our clients. There are so many words that I could use to describe SWARA. What strikes me most is how SWARA and the Pink Twins have reached out and touched so many families and people throughout the years in a caring and helping manner. This brings me a sense of fulfilment as the values align with my own personal goals of wanting to help people where ever I can.
Senior Support Worker
I first started working at SWARA in January 2009. Over the years I have been given the privilege of becoming Senior Support Worker, Temporary manager 2 days per week, WPHS Officer and First Aid Officer. I am enjoying the extra responsibilities and learning more of the duties that are associated with managing a facility such as SWARA. Earlier in my career I was an aged care nurse for 19 years, then I left work for Pioneer Road Services for a few years. I realised I needed to get back to working with people again as I have a calling for this type of work, which brings out my calming, peaceful, and loving nature. I love helping people and bringing out the full potential which is in every client to achieve their own goals and pathways.
