Joining the team in 2010, Fiona came to us after more than 12 years in the communications/ public relations field working as both a consultant and an in-house PR manager. As Director of Communications Fiona now oversees the strategic communications for the Foundation which she describes as not just marketing, advertising and promotion, but also about how the Foundation communicates and interacts with people; our many supporters, stakeholders and the wider community. Fiona enjoys being part of a dedicated, supportive and passionate team and feels very fortunate to be able to see firsthand the remarkable people who, through their research, are changing and improving the health of so many Australians. Outside of the office, Fiona has an almost incurable wanderlust and enjoys exploring new places, cultures and people. She dreams to one day settle for a few months in a quiet village in southern Italy and feel like a local.
