“The aged care sector is currently facing challenges which give us all the chance to step up and provide next level service to our clients and their families.
“I know Benetas well and I value what they also hold dear in terms of their customer focus and care. I am looking forward to the opportunity to help the existing team as much as I can over the coming period.”
A trained nurse, Helen also holds a Bachelor of Arts from Queensland University, where her major areas of study were health and physical education and sociology. She has also completed an MBA at Melbourne Business School.
