A highly skilled and values-driven senior health executive, Jen focuses on delivering strategic and operational success. She has achieved this across a range of services within large tertiary and specialist health services as well as most recently within government. Jen was seconded into the Victorian Department of Health for a 2 month period to create and design a stable COVID-19 testing system. The secondment evolved into 18 months in the department's COVID-19 Response, as the Executive Director of Pathology, Testing & Engagement, then Aged Care Policy & Preparedness and finally Case, Contact and Outbreak Management to plan for the transition of the COVID-19 Response to Public Health Division.

Jen is currently the Executive Director of Health Service and Aged Care Policy Improvement and Engagement in the Commissioning and System Improvement Division. This portfolio remit includes policy regarding end of life care.
