Ms Jillianne McGregor
I began working for Professor Steven Chan who was the newly appointed Head of Department of Surgery, the University of Melbourne, about 17 years ago. At that time the department was located at the Footscray Hospital. Professor Chan and I set up the department from humble beginnings to what it is more or less today.
I am now retired but continue to work for the University one day a week as a Publications Co-ordinator with the Department of Surgery. This is interesting work as I get to read about the great research being done by our surgeons and colleagues.
That leaves me with the rest of the week to look after my garden, read my books and enjoy painting and craftwork with my grand-daughter.
