What would you describe as your area of expertise?
Working with dynamic teams in complex environments. My background in technical IT has taught me to be highly adaptable to constant change, be a great listener, problem solver and provide excellent service delivery to my clients.
Which projects are you most proud of (and why)?
I’ve had pleasure of working on a wide variety of dynamic and challenging projects in my career. The one that currently stands out would have to be the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse project. It is extremely rare to be given the opportunity to assist in the design and implementation of a new hospital facility in terms of infrastructure, workflow and patient/staff experience. I was fortunate enough to have worked with a group of talented and versatile individuals, all of whom worked efficiently and effectively as a team. The experience was definitely a career defining moment for me.
What are you currently working on?
I have recently finished working on various Integrative Care projects for eHealth NSW including eReferral and Shared Care Planning projects across various Local Health Districts across the state. I am currently working on a Horizon Scanning project for the Ministry of Health’s Workforce Planning and Development Branch. This project involves examining factors that will influence Workforce planning for various Allied Health Services across the state.
How would you describe working for Francis Health?
Francis Health offers the opportunity to work with extremely dynamic, intelligent and exciting team members. The environment offers, in my opinion, the perfect balance between autonomous and team focused activities. It is a synergy of being challenged, excited and rewarded.
What is your Big Hairy Audacious Goal?
I would love to do Heli-skiing in Antarctica with the penguins in the next 5 years!
