Aged care and retirement living provider IRT Group has added senior clinical psychologist Dr Kellie Marshall to its board.
Dr Marshall, who has been a practicing clinical psychologist since 2012, has extensive experience in the healthcare industry.
She worked for the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Medicare Local and its predecessor the Illawarra Division of General Practice for 12 years, seven of which as CEO or deputy CEO.
Dr Marshall studied psychology at the University of Wollongong and completed her doctorate in clinical psychology while working for the IDGP.
Dr Marshall said she is passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of communities and individuals.
“I’ve always wanted to make a positive impact on a population by working with organisations that support the community’s health,” Dr Marshall said.
“I’ve been privileged to help improve health outcomes for communities and individuals throughout my time with the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Medicare Local and now as a practicing clinical psychologist,” she said.
IRT Group chair Mike Halloran said the board has a robust process for identifying skills, experience and characteristics required of each director.
“The board was committed to identifying the right candidate to complement the existing directors and we are confident we have found that in Dr Kellie Marshall,” Mr Halloran said.
Dr Marshall’s appointment fills the position previously held by the late IRT Group director Tineke Robinson, who died in 2018.
