Sonia Lim 9 Mar 2022

A big congratulations to Abbie Lee Russell for winning the 2022 Community Colleges Australia (CCA) Community Education Student of the Year Award!

Abbie was an early school leaver and young mother who took time out from studying to support her young family. It was a number of years before she had the opportunity to study again but that did not let that stop her from building a career in aged care. Abbie started working at RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village before she even completed her studies and has proved to be a wonderful carer.

“Abbie is a delightful young lady, always smiling and bubbly. She truly cares for her residents and absolutely loves what she does,” shared Pam Badior, General Manager at RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village.

Abbie encourages anyone looking to work in aged care to go for it and said “it is absolutely rewarding.”
