AAA 2019 Winners

Angie Tan

Angie readily takes the lead for adhoc events and is highly committed and passionate in her roles. She went the extra mile to search and share with the Women in Science programme participants, relevant news and inspirational examples of successful women professionals. When faced with arduous tasks that required complex coordinating, she could still prepare detailed and individualised guest itineraries.

Favourite part of her job? Work is always fun and there is immediate gratification in seeing the clinician clients learn new skills at the various workshops and events.

Favourite part of her job? Being able to provide solutions to issues that arise and knowing that doing her job indirectly helps our school, students and colleagues.

Mary is an exemplary teammate who shows remarkable compassion and support to colleagues and students, while having the courage and professional integrity to speak up if she thinks that something should be done differently. She takes a keen interest in mentoring younger, or newer teammates and caring for her team. She is also very committed to helping colleagues succeed.

Favourite part of her job? Seeing the students graduate and evolve into outstanding clinicians who will make a positive difference to the community.

Cynthia consistently exceeds expectations and is frequently one step ahead of any incoming tasks.

Any tasks that are assigned to her will not be forgotten and will be completed excellently and efficiently.

Favourite part of her job? The opportunity to develop an Income & Expenses tracking system for CTeD’s commercialisation projects.
