She joined the team at InsideOut Institute in October 2020 and recently completed a Grad. Cert. in Medical Management and Leadership with University of Wollongong.
Sally is passionate about the importance of wholistic care including mental and physical multidisciplinary care for patients with eating disorders and other mental health conditions. She has presented on the role of the GP in the headspace model at the Australian Association for Adolescent Medicine Youth Health Conference and the National headspace forum in Melbourne. She sat on the GP project committee developing the headspace GP model integrity framework, the headspace national data roundtable and has worked as a consultant for headspace national and the headspace GP Registrar program.
With a background in the arts as a filmmaker and musician, Sally enjoys taking a lateral and creative approach to problems and barriers around access and quality of care for those living with eating disorders. As an expert in service provision and management, she is inspired to solve problems, by not only exploring the bigger picture, but also looking into the detail of processes, workflow, culture, software, digital health, clinical governance and quality improvement.
