Ross and Tracey Denby are a multi-faceted couple:
Special education teacher – Financial accountant and counsellor – Partners- World Travellers – Volunteers
Most importantly, they are helpers.
Together with their team of support workers, they draw on past careers and personal experience with disability support to ensure that every participant they work with can thrive.
Bass River Country isn’t just their team; it’s all of ours.
“LIFE’S LIKE A RIVER. YOU CHOOSE HOW TO NAVIGATE IT.”
Tracey Denby, Manager
Tracey was engaged as an accountant until traveling to Myanmar and working in the community there with children and families who struggle to put food on their table. Later returning to Australia, Tracey then studied Diplomas of Case Management and Financial Counselling. After 2 1/2 years with The Salvation Army as a Financial counsellor she stepped out to co-found Bass River Country with Ross. Tracey also established Paul’s Table Café and works there as one of the trainers in hospitality.
Ross Denby, Manager
Ross has worked for many years in secondary colleges until moving over to Special Education as an Art teacher. He also has worked overseas in Myanmar as an English teacher in both villages and universities. After returning to Australia, he then reinvented himself as an instructor in hospitality and is the main barista and trainer at Paul’s Table Café which he co-founded with Tracey. Both Ross and Tracey were parents of a child who had a disability, so they know from personal experience the struggles families face when looking for services for their loved ones.
