Background:

Prior to Monash University I worked for a Pharmaceutical Manufacturer (Hospira Australia). I was with Hospira for a period of 11 years working in four different roles that included; Production Planning, Regulatory Affairs, Process Validation and a move into Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) in 2005. Since moving into OHS I have enjoyed it greatly as OHS has involved engagement with all aspects of the Hospira business ranging from warehousing, dispensing, mixing, filling, decontamination, packing, Chemistry laboratories, Microbiological Laboratories, Research Laboratories and administrative areas. This resulted in returning back to studies after a long break to gain a formal qualification in OHS which I have now completed in full. In late 2010 I left Hospira and moved into my current role with Monash University, where I continue to use my experience and knowledge to provide OHS advice to all aspects of Monash Universities operational requirements.
