What attracted you to WA Health’s graduate program?

The graduate program was recommended to me by my university supervisor and it sounded like a great opportunity to develop my skills and experience, and try out a variety of different roles across WA Health to find out what I really wanted to do with my career.

What areas did you work in while in the graduate program?

My first placement was at Fiona Stanley Hospital in the Clinical Commissioning team. I then moved to the South Metropolitan Health Service to work on a patient revenue project, and finally on to the Office of Mental Health at Royal Street assisting with the implementation of the Stokes Review and Mental Health Bill.

What is your current position?

Program Officer in the Health Reform Program

What does your current job involve?

I work within the Health Reform Program Office that oversees project management, strategy and governance, and communications. My role involves coordinating and facilitating Program communications and stakeholder management. This includes developing communications products, such as fact sheets and communications strategies, coordinating communications events, and providing advice to projects within the Reform Program.

What has been your most memorable experience while working in WA Health?

There isn’t one single experience, but I think the people I have had the pleasure of working with have made my time in each role very memorable.
