Meet the Team
My name is Bianca. I am Director and Owner of Bright Star Support Services SA.
I am a mother of 2 amazingly unique humans, both with their own disabilities. I have been working as a Disability Support Worker for over 6 years. Before that I assisted in a playgroup that was inclusive of all with an area of understanding for autistic children. I also volunteered with an organisation who support families on the autism spectrum for 4 years.
I am a qualified counsellor. A Lead Trainer of Emotional-CPR, and hold a diploma in Mental Health. I am autistic and a life full of lived experience.
I am quirky and you will tend to see me in a different pair of quirky earrings!
I pride myself on being transparent, honest and authentic in who I am.
I am passionate about making a change, supporting not only the client but the whole family and spreading understanding, acceptance, validation and more. I believe for this the key words are connection and compassion. I am a Marvel fan, I am creativity with Arts and Crafts. And gently learning the art of gardening!
Hi my name is Katy!
I am a passionate disability advocate and am excited to bring my skills and knowledge of NDIS to the Brightstar Team.
What will my job be?
I help you understand and budget your plan to help you map a pathway forward. If needed, I can also support you to prepare for plan review.
Maximising supports in participants plans is part of the whole thing, assessing budgets, supports and goals and sometimes working with what you have until your next scheduled plan review.
I look forward to connecting with others and supporting as needed.
Hi I’m Thaiss and I’m a Spanish Australian. I’ve enjoyed travelling to different countries overseas. I am a new mum to a beautiful girl. I love music, vintage movies and road trips to hidden towns to check out their antique shops, house ruins and the history of the town. (Crystal Brooke was pretty good!) I have been in the Early Learning Sector for over 20 years and still want to be connected and be a part of creating a better world for children and their families. I would love to carry this passion over to the disability sector.
My name is Lily.
I am the mum of two amazing autistic teenagers who are my pride and joy. We share our home with two cats, two budgies and two silly chooks who provide us with lovely fresh eggs.
I love Halloween and attending OzComicCon and SupaNova: I consider myself a massive geek! My main fandoms are Doctor Who, Supernatural, MCU and more recently, Stranger Things. One of my favourite things to do is curl up with a good book and I’m always on the look-out for great new book or author recommendations. I look forward to getting to know everyone who walks through Bright Stars doors.
My name is Olivia, I have been supporting young people with disabilities since 2018.
Supporting people is my passion that I’ve been fortunate enough to make it my career. I truly do love my job!
I enjoy art, music, movies, cooking and yoga in my spare time. I’m a fan of Doctor Who, Marvel, and I absolutely LOVE Harry Potter!
Amongst other training I also hold seizure training. I have lived experience of autism and I understand everyone is unique.
Hi, My names Jacob, and I am super excited to work along side Bright Star Support Services and its amazing staff. I have a strong background in mental health and am super passionate about supporting and assisting people.
I am a music fan and have been playing guitar since roughly 9 years old. I can also play drums, and a little bit of piano. (Apparently, I don’t sing bad either). I enjoy camping and the beach, and being outdoors, but I also love sitting in, relaxing, and playing video games. I am a father of 3 boys and a dog owner.
I have a life full of lived experience dealing with the ups and downs of what life can throw at you, so the knowledge I can utilise and relay in my support to clients can come from a place of self-growth and understanding of the struggle. I look forward to the opportunity to meet some awesome clients and begin this journey with Bright Stars!

I enjoy having fun and laughing whenever possible, having new experiences and trying new things. I love socialising and travelling with friends and family and dedicating time to others.

I also have personal insight and hands on experience of mental health and the complex issues that are involved on this journey.
I hope to use my life experiences to make day to day living easier for someone else and most of all I am looking forward to developing relationships and connections with some amazing children, young people and their families.
