It is with great pleasure I have joined the CBS team. A few weeks into the role it is clear to me the passion exists within our business to really make a difference to the clients we support. It is also clear there has been a significant amount of activity in past years to improve how we do what we do, both in terms of business support and community care.
I’m looking forward to the next wave of growth, the opportunity for efficiencies and continuous improvement, and engagement so we can continue to focus on our customers to maximise their independence and make a difference.
I have met already with all Heads of Departments to gain an understanding (as much as is possible in the first few weeks!) of the key priorities and challenges, as well as getting to know them as key members of the leadership team.
I intend to meet people throughout the State. If you are a visitor to the Moonah office please drop by and say hello.
You may want to know a little more about me…… I have been married for 30 years, have two gorgeous boys (they are men but as a mum I can still call them my boys!). My past 8 years has been in the health sector as the CEO of General Practice Training Tasmania with a focus on healthier Tasmanian communities. I am also involved in the sector in other ways through Board roles with Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and Primary Health Tasmania, and I am privileged to be the President of Cancer Council Tasmania. I enjoy the broader focus on public safety, community, health and everything in between. That is why I wanted a new challenge in the areas of aged care and disability, and why I’m delighted the Board of Directors has given me this opportunity.
Keep up the fabulous work – thank you for what you do!
