Welcome to Eliza Walter, Catholic Healthcare’s new Human Resources Business Partner for the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Eliza is enjoying a recent sea change. Now based in Coffs Harbour, Eliza previously lived in Bondi Beach with her pet labradoodle Bailey. Eliza is pictured above with Bailey.

“I had wanted to move out of Sydney for a while”, says Eliza. “I’m excited to be in this newly created role, combining my passion for aged care and human resources.

“Bailey comes with me wherever I go. She works as a therapy dog at St Joseph’s Residential Aged Care in Coffs Harbour and brings a smile to many staff and residents.”

In her new role, Eliza is supporting the residential aged care teams in our Northern Homes in Coffs Harbour and surrounds.

Sally Renshaw, Regional Manager, welcomed Eliza’s appointment, “Eliza joined in early October and is already a familiar face to the teams at Coolamon Villa in Mullumbimby, St Francis in Grafton and St Joseph’s and St Augustine’s in Coffs Harbour,” says Sally.

“Eliza will be focused on activities and initiatives underway at the Homes aligned with insights from the 2020 Staff Engagement Survey Feedback. Eliza has already made a significant contribution to the recruitment process and is assisting the teams with interviews, on-boarding and orientation. We look forward to working with Eliza.”

Eliza holds a Master of Health Administration and a Bachelor of Business (majoring in Human Resources). She has worked in a variety of industries but is looking forward to focusing on aged care. She has worked as a Personal Care Assistant and launched the #cyclingwithoutage (an aged care community initiative) program in Sydney.
