The importance of promoting community health and wellbeing, and women in leadership.
RSVP by 10 am on Mon 27/5/2019 to join us at Club Taree - 121 Wingham Road, TAREE
Teresa originally hails from the Manning Valley. She trained as a speech pathologist after initially winning a scholarship to study maths and her talents and passions were recognised early in her career at Liverpool Hospital. This led to her progression through roles that now see her as CEO of one the largest and most diverse health districts in Sydney. Teresa also somehow finds time to serve on several boards. …and to spend time with us!
Teresa’s dedication to public health saw her receive the award of Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2018 for her service to community health and to public administration in NSW as a clinician, manager and health service executive. She has won many other Awards for Innovation, and for Excellence in the Public Sector. She is passionate about supporting and mentoring her staff and continues to develop programs and services to improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
Having contracted rheumatic fever at age 6 necessitating nearly a year away from school and experiencing the disability of being confined to a wheelchair has given Teresa an appreciation that fuels her drive.
