Meet Jasmine, our Workplace Chaplain
Posted on March 13, 2019 by Iosis
Meet the wonderful Jasmine Fidow-Maiava, who holds, not just one, but three important roles at Iosis … and it’s soon to be four!
As our Workplace Chaplain, Jasmine leads devotions once a month with the Iosis staff and also makes herself available to meet with individual staff members. She provides a confidential sounding board for our team – particularly those of us ‘at the coal face’ who are working with people in very challenging circumstances.
Jasmine also runs the spirituality group at Merivale, consisting of practical sessions with Merivale’s mothers. As most of these women have experienced trauma and overcome significant challenges, Jasmine says they talk a lot about forgiveness.
Thirdly, Jasmine also provides administrative Support at Merivale. This important role provides support to our frontline staff who work directly with the mums, enabling them to focus on their roles while Jasmine takes care of organisation and paperwork.
On top of all that, Jasmine is in her second year of a counselling degree at MIT. This year they undertake practical studies and she successfully applied to do this at Iosis – so she’ll also be here as a counsellor. Jasmine is one very busy lady but much appreciated in all of our lives!
