Each month we’re featuring a member of the Hepatitis Queensland team so you can get to know us. To kick things off, we’d like to introduce Sam, our Operations Manager.
How long have you been with Hepatitis Queensland?
What’s a typical day like?
Typically picking up a coffee from our friendly baristas, no two days are the same here, which is exciting and I always walk out the door at the end of the day with a “hooroo” and thank you to the team.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
The ability to dream big and knowing that with every keystroke, conversation, phone call, cheesy video developed, and education delivered, contributes to changing someone’s life.
What has been your favourite project so far?
We have delivered some amazing projects since I have been here, so it is hard to pick a favourite however the Test Cure Live Roadshow was pretty special.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
This is a tricky one. Currently spending time catching up with my mum, dad, son and partner via videos and phone calls. I do like to cook, so doing a few cooking classes with the aforementioned. I also like to watch cringeworthy reality tv shows, ONLY so I can provide wit and humour to the running commentary at our lunchtime conversations here at work!
What three words best describe you?
Witty, compassionate, resilient
Who inspires you?
In 2020, it would have to be my son, James. As a 24-year-old, he has shown a level of maturity and resilience that is breathtakingly inspiring.
If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring?
A good book, a hat and lots of drinking water.
