Biography

Over many years I have contributed to Australiaьs national health and social care reform agenda through my work with state and commonwealth agencies. I have held senior leadership positions with national government and not for profit health care and social welfare services, including women's and community health services, healthdirect Australia, the Department of the Premier and Cabinet in South Australia, Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation and Health Workforce Australia. I am also the Founder and CEO of Change Day Australia. This frontline led movement for change mobilizes people everywhere: clinicians, allied and auxiliary staff, leaders, patients, clients and the public to do something better together to improve outcomes for patients and their families. In 2015, 46,000 pledges were made in Australia. I was recently named by The Edge as one of the top 100 Global Health Leaders to follow on Twitter.
