Operations Manager Community Services
Maya joined Windana in 2023 with a dual focus on the strategic and operational leadership of Windana’s holistic Community Services – including Care and Recovery Coordination, Counselling for alcohol and other drugs, Family Program, Health & Healing, Intake and Peer Support.
Prior to Windana, Maya was Senior Manager Complex Mental Health and Disability at ERMHA and has held leadership positions in the Local Area Coordination team in Melbourne East and Gippsland (with Latrobe Community Health), and at Headspace. Maya’s education includes a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and Graduate Diploma of Counselling.
Maya’s background in both client-facing and senior management roles equips her to motivate and develop teams – so that in turn they can empower Windana’s clients to set and accomplish their goals. Principles of Maya’s leadership include a commitment to lifelong learning, enabling people to live meaningful lives, including lived experience in service development and provision, expanding holistic and client-focused pathways and keeping clients and the community at the centre of services.
Maya is passionate about contributing to an alcohol and other drug sector where diverse clients can access responsive, comprehensive care – with life changing outcomes.
