Angela Ansell, General Manager
I’m passionate about social justice.
My twenty-five-year career in Community Services is founded on optimism, patience and making every single day count towards empowering vulnerable people to make positive life changes.
As JSW’s General Manager, I’m here to inspire and lead our team in delivering top-quality region-wide support services to those who need help the most.
When it comes to helping people overcome disadvantage and exclusion, loyal, tenacious support makes a world of difference. JSW delivers this in spades. We’re fiercely loyal to our clients and staff, and we never give up.
Outside of work, my hectic family life resembles the film Big Fat Greek Wedding. We’re a close family and there for each other through life’s ups and downs. We also share loads of laughs and heaps of excellent food.
Our family get-togethers centre on big cook-ups – around a million dishes – just to make sure there’s enough! In my quiet times, I love gardening or curling up with a good book (mostly biographies).
