In August, we were delighted to welcome Michelle Dillon to Rocky Bay as our new Director Clinical Services.
Michelle’s role sees her working with our therapists and their management team, as well as the Posture Tech team who are based at the Patricia Kailis Centre. She’s also a member of Rocky Bay’s Executive team.
Get to know Michelle a little better with our below Q&A!
Tell us more about your career background?
I’m a Registered Nurse by profession and I have worked in Western Australia, New South Wales, England and India. I have held a variety of senior management roles, including Area Director of Nursing & Midwifery for South Metropolitan Health Service, Executive Director of Organisational Development for Child & Adolescent Health, Acting Executive Director of PMH, and Co-Director of Mental Health Services for Royal Perth Bentley Group.
What do you love most about your field of work?
Like most people, I want to make a difference. I believe that my clinical experience, coupled with what I do daily at Rocky Bay and supporting our therapy and Posture Tech teams, will make a difference to you – our customers.
I love the fact Rocky Bay is all about customer service and delivering high quality services. The staff I work with are very welcoming and committed to our customers – it is an exciting place to work.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am a mother of three teenagers, so they have dominated any free time I had! If I get the chance, I like to walk (although it is very cold in the mornings), watch my children play sport and have dinner and wine with friends.
What are three things you can’t live without and why?
- I have to say my children and husband – otherwise I will be in trouble!
- Wine, chocolate and cheese
- Books – any book to read
