Here she answers some questions about her career and what she is most looking forward to in her new role.

How long have you worked in the health sector?
I have worked in the health sector for around 20 years. Immediately prior to coming to CheckUP I was in the higher education sector for 3 years, which did have a health flavour as it was in a medical school. Before that, my entire career was in health, and this covered clinical optometry, sessional academia, research assistance, and working in industry consultation.

What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
Engaging with organisations and individuals who are making a real difference.

What are 3 words you would use to describe CheckUP?
How can I limit it to just 3?!?! Caring, engaged, enthusiastic, impactful, nimble, open…. the list goes on.

What activities do you enjoy when you’re not working?
Swimming, camping (only since 2022 – I was persuaded to go for the first time in 25 years and loved it), week-long silent meditation retreats, spending time with family and friends.

Who did you last listen to when you drove/flew somewhere?
ABC Grandstand’s coverage of the Australian summer of test match cricket.
