Madonna commenced as Executive Director Mission Leadership at Mater on 30 June 2008. She looks forward to building on Mater’s demonstrated commitment to integrate the mission and values throughout the organisation. Delivering compassionate care to people within a dynamic, challenging health care environment demands creative and innovative approaches and Mater's community continues to demonstrate its readiness and ability to do so.
For the past 17 years she worked in Canberra in leadership roles with Little Company of Mary Health Care, Catholic Health Australia and the Commonwealth Department of Health.
Prior to completing a business administration degree, Madonna trained as a general nurse and midwife at Mater, and worked as a registered nurse in a rural hospital, a disability service and a residential aged care service in Queensland. She has a masters degree in arts (theology).
