SJ is a quiet, but dedicated and diligent worker. Always supportive of her team and the wider organization around her, Sarah-Jane was always happy to lend a hand and help out on large projects or to relieve a very busy team member of some of their load.
— Claire Cameron, QIMR Berghofer
Having explored varied career directions, Sarah-Jane’s skill set is a unique combination of science, health, IT and marketing, with a Bachelor of Science and Graduate Diploma in Science Communication from UQ. She has a background in social media, web design, biological and health science, and writing/editing.
Sarah-Jane was previously the social media voice for QIMR Berghofer (Twitter, Facebook, Google+) and managed the content for the QIMR Berghofer website. One of her largest projects included converting the static html website to a CMS, porting over 1,000 pages to the new system. See Sarah-Jane’s employment history here.
Combining the skills acquired in paramedic study and her interest in travel and psychology, Sarah-Jane hopes to take her career overseas.
“My vision is to assist with access to health care in developing countries or disadvantaged communities. Having previously worked in the non-profit sector, I hope to offer my skills to a cause that can make a difference to those most at risk.”
