Anyone who has met me knows that I am passionate about neighbourhood houses. I have worked in the community sector since 2003, having worked at neighbourhood houses, community centres and at council as a Community Engagement Officer. I am proud to be the new manager at Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House and together with our staff and volunteers will work with the community to create a house that is inclusive, dynamic and responds to our community’s needs. Come by the house and say hello!

Hello Mount Eliza,

I am Kelly and I have been working at our wonderful Neighbourhood House since January 2017.

My working background has always been with people.  I began in childcare, transitioned into the disability sector and finally decided to join the nursing profession.

I now run social programs on Monday and Thursdays that are for anyone who enjoys a laugh, board games, the arts and movies.  We like to go out for the odd lunch or excursion too.

Wednesday mornings are where I like to add a bit of magic, pop on my fairy dress and run a playgroup for the little people of the area.  Lots of playing, singing and stories and of course fun!

I look forward to seeing you, so pop in and say Hi.

Kelly K

Sandie Keeble

Receptionist and volunteer
 

My name is Sandie Keeble and I have been working at Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House since June 2017. 

I was a carer for my late husband for 18 years, and worked in retail part time.  I have also volunteered at Somerville Community House in their office.  I love what Neighbourhood and Community houses offer to their communities. I enjoy meeting the members of our neighbourhood house, and listening to the stories they tell.  There is always so much more we can learn from others.

I have a passion for patchwork quilting, which I have been doing for the last 5 years, and enjoy giving my quilts to friends, family and charity

I look forward to helping to develop more programs and continue to do the work that I love.

Sandie

RECEPTIONIST

I have been at Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House for the past 6 years beginning with a traineeship in Community Services. My title is Community Engagement Officer/Receptionist and my job at the house involves answering the telephone, taking messages, answering inquiries and booking clients into the activities that we offer here. I also help out with community café and have become an expert scone maker! I also help out with community lunches and facilitate Playgroup on Thursday.

Outside of work, I’m kept busy with my two beautiful children Mason and Willow. 

I enjoy working with the community and helping the manager bring new and exciting programs to the house. One of the highlights of my work is having lovely conversations with a wide range of people from the young to elderly. 

 I look forward to meeting you at reception.
