A little bit about us

TRISTAN EVANS - Founding Director

I have been a caring person in a practical sense almost all my life, from being a caring brother to an adopted sister to being a youth mentor and tutor helping troubled youths, then on to becoming a foster parent followed by 17 years in the security industry during which I jokingly always told people I was a Behaviour Management Specialist, and finally finding my true calling working in disability support. 


My role in disability support work has seen a lot of variation in a relatively short time which has presented me with a wide variety of disabilities and mental health issues to learn about and provide support for including but not limited to:

Intellectual Disabilities – assessed as sub-IQ 50 and lower, Intellectual impairment, Acquired Brain injury, Language and Speech Deficits, predominantly ‘Non-Verbal’

Neurological Disabilities - Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Epilepsy, Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Cortical Vision impairment

Psychiatric Disabilities – Bipolar Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Trauma and Reactive Attachment Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Anxiety

Physical Disabilities - Lumbar spinal cord injury L1-L5, C5/6 and C6/7 spinal disc protrusions associated with spinal cord compression, Low Muscle Tone, Dysphasia/Swallowing Difficulties 

Physical Disabilities – High risk of permanent wheelchair requirement, significant gross and fine motor deficits, Incontinence, Pectus Excavatum – concave anterior chest wall, risk of heart and breathing difficulties and low exercise tolerance.

Meet Our General Manager

Pimprapa Nakluea

Founding General Manager and NDIS Support Worker

pim@karmaabilities.com.au

I grew up in Thailand where the government does not support families with disabled members, my Aunty was disabled (Microcephaly, speech & intellectual disabilities) and I became her carer from a very young age, as I grew up we did everything together she even followed me to school, and I protected her from bullies and other older people who treated her badly. Sadly, my Aunty died when I was a teenager, and I went on to study at University but while I was studying I also worked in aged care and palliative care until I completed my degree in Business and Computing. I then worked for some of the largest banks in Bangkok and learnt a lot about working in large companies, working with very large budgets and meeting high standards in business. When I moved to Australia I could not find work in banks and took a job as a cleaner but I was also working for a lady and helping to look after her daughter who had Autism and I realised that this type of work is what I really enjoyed so I quit working as a cleaner and became a Disability Support Worker, I have completed Certificate 3 and 4 in Disability and Aged Care as well as recently completing my Diploma of Enrolled Nursing. Since working as a disability support worker I have also learnt a lot about admin roles such as bookkeeping, budgeting for NDIS supports and rostering support staff to participants.
