Soleil’s Story

29 Jun, 2022

Clinic Team Leader

Soleil completed her training in 2017, and was employed a short time later as an AHW in the clinic.

While working she was also studying to become an Enrolled Nurse, a course which she completed in 2019.

Since that time, Solly has developed a great interest in Chronic Disease Management, and wants to further her knowledge in that area.

She gained a position as an Aboriginal Health Practitioner in the Chronic Disease Team, and was then offered the Chronic Disease Team Leader role in March 2022, a role in which she has thrived.

BRAMS provides comprehensive, holistic and culturally responsive primary health care services to Aboriginal people living in Broome.

In her own words….

My name is Soleil and I am a Yawuru and Bunuba women from Broome.

I have worked at BRAMS for almost 5 years now and this how I started my journey working in health care.
In 2017 I completed my certificate lV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care practice at KAMS, and I then was employed at BRAMS to work in the clinic.

Once I finished my health worker course and started to work at BRAMS, I was empowered to continue on with my education because I wanted to know more about healthcare and how I can contribute to my community.

I then started my Diploma of Nursing course at Notre Dame University’s Broome campus, and graduated in 2019 as an enrolled nurse.

I continued to work at BRAMS in both the clinic and case managing the RHD clients, and began an interest in chronic disease management and was given an opportunity to join the chronic disease team.
After working in the chronic disease team as an Aboriginal Health Practitioner I was then promoted to the team leader position and I am loving it so far.
