Caren joined BNE when the Emergency Centre doors opened for business in 2001. She worked firstly as a Consultant having worked on a number of private ”ED” projects and having previously managed the Wesley Emergency Centre. The fledgling “Northside project” evolved from a consultative role into a management position too good to leave!
Caren received her B.S. degree in Urban Health Management from St. John’s University in New York. She has worked at The Strang Preventive Medicine Institute as well as NYU and New York Hospital in similar management roles. Further study in Australia led to a Grad.Dip. in Health Promotion from QUT.
