Alex joins us from her former role at the Alcohol and Drug Foundation where she successfully managed programs aimed at reducing alcohol and other drug harms within community and sports settings.

A little bit about Alex…

When did you start at Hepatitis Queensland?

January 2024

What excites you about your new role?

I’m excited to be a part of such a wonderful team that is passionate about the work they do. The hepatitis space is something that’s completely new to me, so it’s been fascinating learning things that I had little/no idea about.  

What’s something you’ve learned in the past week?

In the past week, I’ve learnt how to use the Point-of-Care machine to test for hepatitis C. It’s been incredibly exciting learning a new skill, and I’m grateful the team offered themselves up as my guinea pigs. 

How do you define success?

To me, success is knowing that the work I do is benefitting others and helping them lead a happy and healthy life.

What did you do before joining Hepatitis Queensland?

Before joining Hepatitis Queensland, I worked in the drug and alcohol space for two years. I managed programs aimed at reducing alcohol and other drug harms in community and sports settings within the greater Brisbane region. 

What’s the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I worked in an allergy clinic as a receptionist for a couple years during uni. People really can be allergic to almost anything!

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

When I’m not working, I’m usually out somewhere eating delicious food with friends or family. I’ve recently gotten into reading and running though, so I do like to cram those in where I can.

Who inspires you?

I’m inspired by my friends, family and colleagues. I’m lucky to be surrounded by some really hard-working people and they motivate me to strive for the best.

What’s a fun fact about you people may not know?

I’m an identical twin!

What three words best describe you?

Determined, optimistic, sassy.
