I have definitely taken the scenic route to my current role of Head of People and Culture at Lynbrook Vet. I left a career in dentistry to pursue my true passion – the wellbeing of people at work. Today, I use my work experience across recruitment, health, government, banking, retail and consulting, to help the team at Lynbrook Vet understand their own strengths, develop themselves, work seamlessly in teams, look after their wellbeing and lead by example. Dr Kunal and Dr Alina are fantastic leaders who care about creating a great work environment for every member of their team and it gives me immense pleasure to work with them to support this endeavour.
I believe that every individual has the potential to develop to the very best version of themselves and has the right to work in an organisation where they are valued, engaged, developed and stretched. When we get this balance right, that is when people soar to their best performance and are motivated to provide the best possible service to others – their team as well as their clients. We know this, not just instinctively but from organisational psychology research. It is this evidence and belief that drives me to do the work I do with team members at Lynbrook Vet.
Qualifications and Training
I completed six years of psychology training in 2010, graduating with a Masters in Organisational Psychology from Monash University. I am a registered psychologist (AHPRA) and a certified coach with Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership, am qualified in Counselling Skills and have accreditations in a variety of Psychological Tests used for recruitment, personality assessment, coaching and team development.
My family and interests
I am a mother to two wonderful spirited human girls, two greyhounds and a king pigeon, all of whom I adore very much. Each of them has the power to entertain me and there is never a dull moment! When I am not working, I am likely to be found enjoying spending time with my family and friends, walking outdoors, cooking nutritious meals, reading or meditating.
