First to join the team was Ruth White, the new Director of Nursing, in July this year.
Last month, Ben Levesque joined the team as business manager.
Prior to her appointment, Ms White spent many years working in major metropolitan and country hospitals in NSW and Victoria as Director of Nursing, including at Finley Regional Hospital as a registered nurse and midwife.
Ms White is a Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife, and has a Diploma in Nursing Education and Bachelor of Applied Science (Nursing Administration).
Ms White trained at Mooroopna Base Hospital and completed her midwifery at the Royal Hospital for Women in Paddington (NSW). She studied at La Trobe University.
Ms White is thoroughly enjoying her new role and residing within the community at Tocumwal.
Having only been working at Finley Regional Care for a few weeks, Mr Levesque said he is very excited to be a part of the Finley Regional Care team, and is looking forward to working in a great community organisation.
Mr Levesque has a background in management with some diverse industries mainly in the not-for-profit sector with registered clubs.
He enjoys working with people and particularly organisations that provide great facilities and services to their local community.
Mr Levesque and his family are originally from Yarrawonga and have lived and worked in the region and over the last ten years at Deniliquin, Tocumwal and most recently on the Sunshine Coast.
This experience, particularly his tie in the region, has given him an understanding of Finley and its surrounding communities.
Mr Levesque said he is looking forward to an enjoyable and challenging time with Finley Regional Care and believes he can add value to the already great team.
The facilitator of a new program to help empower women with a disability to become leaders in the community says it is time to stand up.
