Meet our new Geelong team members

Our Geelong team has recently expanded. We're excited to welcome these four new team members to InLife.

Our new assistant coordinators and coordinator have extensive disability experience and are based out of our Pakington St office.

We also have some animal-lovers among the group and are enjoying visits from our new four-legged community member Huxley (Andrew's pup!).

Riley Danaher, Assistant Coordinator

Riley swapped the dental industry for the disability sector about six years ago and hasn’t looked back. She loves that every day is different and there’s always something new to learn.

Her role at InLife includes managing shared SIL accommodation in Geelong. She’s passionate about ensuring everyone works well together as a team.

Away from work, you’ll find her exploring the great outdoors. The Otways is a favourite spot for hiking. She’s also an animal-lover with a white bulldog, Wilson, who is deaf and a Persian cat called Howard who recently had laser eye surgery.

Samantha Croxford, Assistant Coordinator

Sam grew up around disability as her Mum was a support worker. In her first job, she found herself working with some of the same clients, who had known her since she was four- years-old!

Since then, Sam has worked in a range of different roles from house supervisor to day programs and also as a support worker. She was an Assistant at InLife before taking on the role of Assistant Coordinator.

A mum-of-two, Sam loves learning new things and is always up for a challenge. When she’s not running after her young sons, she enjoys catching up with friends for a night-out.

Tess Dolman, Coordinator

Tess has more than 20 years experience in the disability sector and has been an accommodation manager across four shared SIL houses in the past 10 years.

She loves seeing clients achieve their goals and a career highlight was travelling with a group to an international disability conference in Florida, USA.

Tess is also an adrenaline junkie who loves sailing, surfing and jumping out of planes. She has bungee jumped four times in New Zealand and is in the process of planning another trip.

At home, she has two fur-babies, a Labrador and a Border Collie. Tess has taught the Border Collie tricks from YouTube and he now competes in dog agility competitions!

Andrew Howe, Assistant Coordinator

Andrew’s first experience working in disability was as a high school student volunteering at a holiday camp run by OzChild.

Then, while studying at university, he came across music therapy. This sparked his interest further in the sector and he took up disability support work.

Andrew worked as an assistant at InLife before taking on the role of assistant coordinator and enjoys bringing his musical and creative side to work with clients.

At home, Andrew has a gorgeous new Cavoodle puppy called Huxley who is a hit in the Geelong office. He also recently joined a roller skating club in Torquay (they also run great accessible events!).
