I am a management consultant with experience in finance, management accounting and software development. I assist small businesses with compliance, building systems around people so they can concentrate on the work they do best. I help with research, financial modelling, strategic and project planning and implementation of change.
I joined the Company in 2008 and have seen a great deal change across that time, including the development of Amity Health as our core business. It is rewarding to be part of such an excellent team.
I am a Rural Procedural General Practitioner working part-time in Mount Barker. I have a special interest in Women and Children’s health as well as Aboriginal Health. After training in rural WA I am very aware of the inequality of access to medical services between metropolitan and rural patients. I am pleased to be involved in Amity Health's work towards equitable access to health services.
I was born in South Africa where my interest in medicine began in primary school having witnessed a fellow student suffer an epileptic attack.
Following the completion of my initial training in medicine and a Masters Degree in Family Medicine, I spent some time in rural South Africa. I then spent 18 years in general family practice, before moving to Australia. In 2009 I moved to Albany and I am currently working in private General Practice.
I am passionate about all aspects of family medicine, with particular reference to the holistic approach. My involvement in community medicine is a natural extension of this passion and thus my interest in Amity Health
Trish Ryans-Taylor - Chairperson
I was born in England and moved to Australia in 1969. My move to Albany happened in 2006 and I consider it to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Since 1996 I have worked within the mental health and disability sectors as a research officer, development officer and advocate, and currently work with the Council of Official Visitors (Mental Health) in the Great Southern. I am currently the Southern Aboriginal Corporation’s Family Violence Prevention Legal Service Coordinator. I am also studying for my Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) to gain a Legal Practice Certificate. Over the past 15 years I have been involved with a number of boards and committees - WorkLink, Community Legal Association and Great Southern Women. My involvement with these, and now as a Board Member for Amity Health, is one of the best ways I can support my community and ensure good delivery of services.
