Peta Siggers wins Excellence in Injury and Disability Management at PIEF Awards

Peta Siggers with award at PIEF

Congratulations to IPAR’s Veteran Experience Manager, Peta Siggers, who received the Excellence in Injury and Disability Management (Lived Experience) Award at the Personal Injury Education Foundation (PIEF) Awards held in Brisbane.

Peta followed her father and grandfather into the Army and served as a Medic for 15 years, deploying overseas and supporting our Defence personnel at home. During her time, she was drawn to roles that involved wellbeing, rehabilitation support and complex case management. Then, after experiencing her own injuries while in service, Peta transitioned from Defence to become a Rehabilitation Counsellor, so that she can continue to support the veteran community.

Today, in her national role at IPAR, Peta provides education and support to the many IPAR consultants who work with veteran clients and their families, using her lived experience in the military and rehabilitation counselling qualifications to ensure IPAR’s services remain veteran-centric and holistic. She also builds relationships with veteran and family supports in the wider community to facilitate engagement for veteran clients and their families.
