Azure Village, located on Marymead’s primary site in Narrabundah ACT, is an 84 Unit independent living community consisting of a mix of two and three bedroom townhomes exclusively for over 55’s who are looking to retire in style. As Village Operations Manager I am responsible for overseeing and ensuring the day-to-day operations of the Village are effectively managed.
Having grown up in Canberra’a inner-south and a member of Marymead’s management team since 2009, I have a thorough knowledge of Marymead’s structure, it’s history, mission, values, programs and services.
My career within Canberra's private and more recently not-for-profit sectors spans over four decades, with the last 25 years being employed in the community relations, marketing and advertising industries. I possess extensive experience across all aspects of public relations, marketing, advertising, event management, fundraising, sponsorship, print and media.
Within my previous role as Marymead’s Marketing Unit Manager I was responsible for the implementation of a range of positive and professional public relations strategies to continually enhance recognition and support of Marymead and its programs and services within the community and to build awareness on issues affecting clients. I was also responsible for the implementation of a broad spectrum of revenue development programs and the building of Marymead's brand and profile to attract government, community and corporate support.
My previous experience has enabled me to acquire strong relationship development skills that are now pivotal in working with the residents of Azure Village together with their families, staff, external service providers and other internal and external stakeholders.
