16 October 2020 | Tennis Tasmania

Can you tell the Tasmanian Tennis Community a bit about yourself and your background?

I am a former health service executive with a keen interest in health system reform, particularly in the broader primary health arena and its interface with the acute and aged care sectors
I have a Bachelor of Economics, Master of Business Administration and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

I’m an experienced Non-Executive Director; in addition to my role with Tennis Tasmania, I am currently a member of the University of Tasmania Council and its finance sub-committee, the Menzies Institute for Medical Research Board and the Australian Osteopathic Accreditation Council.

I am also former member of the Tasmanian Institute of Sport Board, Department of Health Audit Committee and National Council of the Australian Hospitals and Healthcare Association.

What attracted you to a position on the Tennis Tasmania Board?

Sport has been an integral part of my life, and being appointed as Vice President is a huge opportunity for me to give back to the game I love.

I have a commitment to wanting to grow and develop the game across the state.

If you could describe your playing style in one or two words, what would it be?

Not having played for some time, I’d describe my game at present as ‘very rusty.’
