Leadership award recognises commitment to children and families

Occupational therapist Emma Williams has received a Health Quality & Safety Commission Open for Leadership award for numerous projects she has initiated, led and coordinated in her role as a case manager, lead crisis worker and, more recently, clinical coordinator with Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

Emma Williams smlCommission Deputy Chief Executive Karen Orsborn says the award recognises her “exemplary leadership, work ethic and commitment to children and families”.

Emma says winning the award came out of the blue as she had no idea she’d been nominated: “I’m just doing my job, which I feel passionate about. That is reward in itself, so to get that level of recognition is quite humbling. I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible.”
