Each month we’re featuring a member of the Hepatitis Queensland team so you can get to know us. This month we’d like to introduce Lana, one of our Project Officers.
How long have you been with Hepatitis Queensland?
A little over 8 years
What’s a typical day like?
No two days are ever the same, I think that is what has kept me motivated and excited to work at Hep Queensland
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Engaging with people who are impacted by viral hepatitis and being able to provide them with information to empower positive change in their life.
What has been your favourite project so far?
A standout is the Positive Living Project, which was an 8-week chronic disease self-management and education project for people in prison. It was accompanied with a hep C treatment clinic which saw the first group of women treated for hep C in Queensland prisons.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
Recently my family bought a little camper so we have been enjoying some bush camping trips.
What three words best describe you?
Organised, thoughtful and very caffeinated
Who inspires you?
No one particular person, but I do work with a very amazing and inspirational bunch of women!
If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring?
My little family – as much as they keep me on my toes, I couldn’t live without them.
