Michelle has worked with healthcare professionals in a variety of roles in the medical/health industry since her first ‘real’ job when she finished university in 1993. In the 20+ years since then, Michelle’s experience can be roughly split between hospitals and consulting companies.
Before starting with MyPS, Michelle was the Senior Business Development Manager at Epworth Richmond (2015-2018).

This was followed ten years later (2008-2012) as the inaugural Translation Manager (translating research into practice, and including communications and marketing) at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne.
Previous to MyPS, Michelle worked for three healthcare consulting companies in London, Singapore and finally back in Melbourne. Starting as a Project Manager, Michelle worked her way to become an Account Director, and her work included: the creation of strategic documents (business development plans, key messages, communications strategies, grant applications, proposals, etc); resource development (brochures, fact sheets, web content, e-learning, videos, etc); and the organisation of events (scientific meetings and advisory boards).
Further to the skills Michelle has amassed in over 25 working years, she understands:
- The ‘life cycle’ of a medical practitioner and how to build this into strategies
- Healthcare professionals’ referral pathways and patterns, and how to incorporate these into a business and marketing/promotion plan
- The importance of developing a vision for a business, and how to clarify and articulate the steps to achieve this.
Michelle looks forward to working with healthcare professionals to build their practice and so they can get on with their work of improving patient outcomes.
