Ms Reid was announced as a finalist in the trainee category of the Aged and Community Services WA Awards, recognising her for her work at Braemar House while she also finishes her Vocational Graduate Diploma in Ontological Coaching.
She said the placement had helped her better understand the work involved with her area of study.
�Ontological Coaching focuses on the �way of being�, which is the dynamic interrelationship between areas of the human existence, including language, emotions and the body,� she said.
�Braemar has been supporting me through the diploma and as part of my study I have been conducting workshops within Braemar, which means I�m bringing all of my learning back into the workplace to help directly benefit our staff, carers and residents.
�Being announced as a finalist in the awards really came as a surprise but it�s very exciting, and it�s nice to have my work and the ways it benefits the Braemar community recognised.�
Ms Reid is one of two finalists in the category.
