Kylie Hoffmann


I am a mother of two young ladies, one with a partner. I have one stepdaughter and two stepsons all with partners. I also have a granddaughter and one grandson. We are a large, loud and crazy family that loves to gather to spend time together when time allows us. To and have many laughs, enjoying each other’s company.

I have worked in my husband’s gardening business for the last 12 years, whereby, I decided I wanted to do more to help people, my passion to help people was telling me to do more – so I decided a change was required for me.

I started my journey to become an NDIS provider as I have faced many challenges having a family member on the NDIS scheme, seeing exactly what it entails and wanting to do more to help people – I am on both sides of the system where I am a provider and also involved with my family member.

I have extensive knowledge with Mental Health due to thelongevity of personal experiences and courses completed to obtain knowledge and a deeper understanding of mental health.

I love music and love to attend music concerts and festivals, I love to hang out with family and friend. My favourite Rugby League teamsare the Brisbane Broncos and Queensland Maroons.

My passion is to make a difference in each and every person’s life in any way that I can and give them the best quality of life that they are able to achieve with integrity. I am a helper through and through and go above and beyond in every way possible that I can each and every day.
