New social service practitioners with less than 2 years in experience

Jean has a strong interest and passion for sustainable and systemic cross-sector solutioning for change. This arose from her past experiences in reviewing, redesigning and developing community-based interventions involving volunteers and partners.

Jean also believes in the importance of capacity building so that staff, volunteers and service users can then go on to do more with who they are and what they have. Jean was conferred the Promising Social Worker Award in 2012.

Prior to her posting to lead a preschool-based preventive development model of work with Circle of Care under Care Corner Singapore, Jean worked in the family services sector and was the agency head for two family service centres.
