People Outdoors Staff Profile: Sandra

I’m Sandra Murphy and I am part of the People Outdoors branch of the Australian Camp Association. I work as the Camp Coordinator as well as attend camps as a Program Leader and Disability Support Worker.

My first People Outdoors camp was as a Disability Support Worker in December 2020 (right after the second lockdown). After a few months I began working as a Program Leader on camps and then in June 2021 I began in the office full time as the Camp Coordinator.

A little about me: I was born in Ireland and have been living here in Melbourne for the last 10 years now. I trained as an Intellectual Disability nurse and I have had many different roles in the disability field over the last 10 years here in Australia. Back in Ireland I did voluntary work to a disability camp organisation. I am very lucky to have found a paid job in something I adore and use to do as a volunteer in Ireland. Some of my hobbies include ultimate frisbee, yoga and meditation, swimming, dancing and listening to music. I am extremely grateful to be part of the People Outdoors Team to support more kids and adults with disabilities to get out of their comfort zones, get into nature and make new friends!
