Growing up in the small rural village of Boomi, 100km North west of Moree in Northern NSW, I witnessed first hand what effect the lack of health services and education can have on us all and our communities.
Both my parents died at a young age from lifestyle related disease and this experience was where my desire to help people improve their wellbeing started.
In 2013, I lost an employee to suicide, then a mate in 2016 took his own life. In 2019, I found out my own Grandfather also suicided in 1966. (Unfortunately, no-one spoke of suicide back then).
This lived experience has driven me to educate myself about mental health and the link between physical wellbeing and our mind. I also wanted to be able to reach out to friends, family and colleagues with confidence and competence offering help if they experience mental health and wellbeing issues.
All of this drives my passion for supporting the health and wellbeing of people who live in rural and regional Australia and led to the start-up of ManageHealth where our aim is to help keep you well inside, outside and above the neck!
Before starting her own Personal Assistant/Virtual Assistant Business in late 2014, CMC Perfection, Corinne was a Legal Secretary. Corinne started as a Legal Secretary back in 1997 when she was just 16 for a small firm in the Western Suburbs of Sydney. Corinne completed the Legal Secretarial Training Program at the Law Society of New South Wales in 2004 and in early 2013, completed the Advanced Diploma of Paralegal Secretarial with the International Career Institute.Corinne has also worked in Real Estate in Tamworth utilising her conveyancing experience to offer her administration support to real estate sales staff.
Corinne was looking for an opportunity to have a flexible work/life so as to ensure that she was able to also enjoy being a Mum. As a result, she took a leap of faith and resigned from her full-time job in 2015. Quickly it became apparent that this was the best decision she had ever made.
Corinne offers her administration, operational and marketing expertise to ManageHealth. She manages all social media portals, website and engages regularly with current and potential WellBeing Members and clients. Corinne assists with the promotion, marketing and onboarding of participants into ManageHealth’s mental health education programs.
