We love acknowledging the good work that’s going on in villages around Australia.
So we were absolutely thrilled when we learned that Lauren Jackson-Brown (pictured right) from Linton Village RSL Lifecare in Yass, New South Wales, had been named Leading Aged Service Australia’s (LASA) Retirement Village Manager of the Year 2020.
Lauren does some great work at her village, and was praised for her strong leadership skills and ability to maintain a vibrant village environment.
The five finalists were:
- Lauren Jackson-Brown – RSL Lifecare NSW
- Lean Patterson – SCC TAS
- Janine Thompson – Brightwater WA
- Sarah Mosconi – Bethanie, WA
- Catherine Montgomery – Cranbrook Residences, NSW
And it’s worth noting that Lauren, Janine and Sarah are part of the DCM Institute family, taking part in our professional development program in village management.
That’s three out of five finalists!
The awards are designed to recognise how diverse and dynamic our village professional roles are, and people like Lauren provide a great example for the rest of the industry.
