“My passion for the work that we at Every Child CQ are undertaking is enormous, my skills and knowledge with the guidance and support of the Management Group and Community Tables, I believe, stand Every Child CQ and the communities of CQ in a great position to give every child in CQ the chance to reach their full potential.”
Susie began her career with Queensland Health 19 years ago, straight out of Sunshine Coast University where she completed her Bachelor of Science (Public Health). Working initially as the Public Health Physician’s assistant at the Public Health Office, Susie went on to the Northern Peninsula Area as the Community Health Services Manager, where she worked for the following four years. This work in Susie words “gives you an understanding of the importance of being connected to community”. Since moving to Rockhampton fourteen years ago Susie has worked for the Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service initially as a Risk Management and Quality Coordinator, and for the past eight years as the Service Integration Coordinator for Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs. Susie is also an Accredited Partnership Broker and respected for the work that she undertakes utilising these skills.
The greatest asset that Susie brings to Every Child CQ is her relationships across CQ and the respect and trust that she has gained living and working in CQ over the past 14 years.
Susie is a stepmother to five, in her words, amazing children and step grandma to one wonderful 16-month-old little man.
