When did you start at Hepatitis Queensland?
What excites you about your new role?
Working at Hepatitis Queensland is rewarding, challenging and fun. I’m excited to continue to work with an amazing team of committed professionals who enjoy the work they do. I’m looking forward to seeing how we can continue to evolve and achieve our goals for the Queensland community.
What are you most passionate about?
I’m passionate about bringing high-quality healthcare to underserved communities and people who find it challenging to access traditional healthcare systems.
How do you define success?
Knowing that the work I do is making a positive difference to the health of Queenslanders, always looking for better ways of doing things and enjoying the work at the same time.
What did you do before joining Hepatitis Queensland?
Before joining Hepatitis Queensland, I worked in the alcohol and other drug harm prevention space. My role focussed on increasing protective factors and decreasing risk factors for alcohol and other drug harm across Queensland. Before that, I worked in women’s health with a focus on chronic disease prevention.
What’s the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
I’m showing my age, but my first job was at the local Video Ezy store in my hometown. The store doubled as the town’s movie theatre, which meant free videos and movies for me!
