Working with a tenant and her support network to secure the correct SDA funding level so we could start looking at the next steps after having everything in the air for a few weeks “it felt like we had won a marathon”.

What is one story/moment in your job that really made you proud?
Most recently working with a tenant and her support network to secure the correct SDA funding level. The confirmation came through at 5:15pm and I was so excited I called EVERYONE! Being able to talk to the tenant and confirm that they had secured the correct funding and we could start looking at the next steps after having everything in the air for a few weeks – felt like we had won a marathon or something.
A close second would be when my boss, Queenie, and I rocked up to a work function in the same outfit!
