Kilmore District Health Executive Assistant
What is your greatest achievement/highlight/story, something that you are proud of?
Working on a Royal Commission. It was the most interesting, unpredictable and eye opening role I have ever had.
Have you overcome challenges that you have learnt from?
I received some negativity in some of my roles from individuals because I didn’t attend a private school or have the ‘correct’ university degrees. Accomplishing the roles I have, even without that ‘important’ background reinstated for me that everyone should be given the same chance, no matter where they have come from because people learn and achieve things in different ways.
Who are the women who have inspired you in your life and/or career, and why?
Two wonderful women I worked with over a number a years. Both of these women encouraged me to take on new challenges, express my opinions and supported me at some of the best and hardest times of my life. I want to be like them when I grow up :)
What advice would you give to future women and girls in your industry?
Don’t be limited to the role that you have or the title you are given – you can do more, if you want to do more.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you want to meet, and why?
Tom Hanks. I’d love to hear his thoughts on all of the movies he’s been in and how he knows which roles to accept.
Who is someone you look up to at KDH and why?
There are a few different people that I look up to, all for different reasons but the one thing they all have in common is compassion, for what they do and why they are here.
