About TNS

 

What inspires you most about your work?
What inspires me most about my work are my athletes themselves. Their determination, resilience, and unwavering commitment to their recovery inspire me every day. Witnessing their progress and the positive changes in their lives keeps me motivated and dedicated to helping them achieve their goals.

What are some of the positive impacts you notice your work has on participants?

Some of the positive impacts I notice in our participants with spinal cord injuries are truly remarkable. Even a 1% change can mean the world to them. It might manifest as improved pain management, increased independence in transferring, requiring less support, or achieving other vital milestones in their recovery journey. These seemingly small improvements can significantly enhance their quality of life and sense of empowerment.

Witnessing these transformations and being a part of their progress is incredibly rewarding and drives my passion for this work.

 

Get To Know Kylie

 

Introducing Kylie, our spirited Ramen connoisseur with a passion for scaling heights in the world of climbing.

When she’s not tackling vertical challenges, you’ll find her wrapped up in episodes of How I Met Your Mother.

While Kylie isn’t a die-hard movie buff, she does have a soft spot for The Deepest Breath when the mood strikes.

Mornings for her kick off with a mandatory coffee fix, often in the delightful company of her two loyal black labs, Nutmeg and Pepper.

As a fervent supporter of both the Melbourne Demons and the Oilers, she wears her team colours with pride. But Kylie’s interests extend beyond sports, she’s an avid traveller who fell in love with South Korea.

Her secret weapon? An empathetic nature that lights up any room she enters.

She lives by the motto, “Nothing good happens after 2 am,” and her eclectic taste in music spans everything but metal and country.

Now, here’s an interesting tidbit, Kylie attended a French school in Canada and had to take ESL classes during her initial years in Australia.

Kylie’s life is a whirlwind of activities, from conquering climbing walls to pedalling through scenic landscapes, clocking in miles with her running shoes, taking refreshing swims, and embarking on memorable camping and hiking adventures.

In a nutshell, she’s a force of nature with a zest for life!
