Yvette Bannister

“Being a boutique provider, the team are like a family and are really supportive. Everyone truly cares about each other which flows right through to our clients.”

Yvette Bannister is our admin support officer. She provides incredible support to both our clinicians and our clients.

Yvette holds a Bachelor of Education, and initially worked as primary school teacher, until she had her three children and made a career change. As a result, she is highly organised and totally calm under pressure. With her warm personality and compassionate nature, she loves getting on the phone with the Heroes Allied Health clients directly, having a little bit of a chat, and nurturing those relationships.

Originally from the UK, a year backpacking around Australia when she finished her teaching degree led her to relocate to the coastal suburbs of northern Sydney with her husband in 2008. But, when her husband’s job permanently became home based in 2021, they realised they could raise their children anywhere on the planet. Naturally, they chose the Sunshine Coast, loving the relaxing lifestyle and wondering what took them so long to make the move!

Yvette’s caring, kind and compassionate personality has ensured she has fit straight into the Heroes team.
