2018-2019 Committee

ALI Kent - President

Having  been born in Wales, I started to call Australia home 30 years ago. A decision I never regretted.

 Until earlier this year, I was employed by the State Government in a variety of positions that spanned 30 years. These included Fire and Emergency Services, Tourism WA, the Education Department and the Goldfields Esperance Development Commission. All roles have involved strategic and policy development; Training and Development and Project Management.

 12 months ago, I decided to move back to Kalgoorlie-Boulder, where I hadn't lived since 2003, to be closer to my family - especially my gorgeous grandees.  To take advantage of spending more time with my family, I started a consultancy business which offers clients business and strategic planning, grant writing and project management.

 I am passionate about giving back to the community and to be involved in the GWHCC, is a huge privilege. I value the opportunity to be able to work with a diverse and committed Board, supported by a dynamic team.

samantha Duddy - treasurer

I grew up in Kalgoorlie and moved back in November 2011.  Shortly thereafter, I became a member of the GWHCC.  I have used many of their services and attended several events that they haved hosted.  

I think that the centre has an important role to play in reducing the services' gap that can exist in regional healthcare.  I strongly believe that community organisations play a big part in making the Goldfields such a great place to live and I like to contribute when I can.

Personally, I have a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in accounting and taxation and I have 20 years of professional experience.  My family owns an accounting business in town and I am currently working in Finance at Eagle Petroleum.  I am currently the Treasurer of the Kalgoorlie Boulder Volunteer Centre and the Rotary Club of Hannans-Kalgoorlie.  I am also on the Board of the Friend of the Arts Centre.

I have watched the GWHCC frow and continually improve.  I am excited about the opportunity to assist this outstanding organisation. I
