Vicky will also work closely with the new Vitality Village Manager, Lisa Ward, providing executive leadership for village projects.
The village is a $25 million health and wellbeing project in the Sunshine Coast Health precinct at Birtinya.
Lisa joins the village with a wealth of experience in stakeholder engagement, collaboration and project and program and recently took on the role as Vitality Village Manager while Dr Amanda Clacy is on maternity leave.
Lisa was involved in Vitality Village last year in a consultancy role and most recently she has been leading the delivery of the Trade and Investment program for Moreton Bay Regional Council.
“I am excited to work with our Villagers, drive collaboration, projects and programs. I am also looking forward to taking the Vitality Village vision out to the community,” she said.
