Jennifer Kennedy, Registered Nurse, Mental health
“I have been working for Canberra Health Services since November, 2020.
I have primarily focused on mental health throughout my nursing career, and I think it is an honour to be able to help others who are struggling with these challenges. As a nurse, I’m able draw on my knowledge and clinical expertise to propose the most appropriate, person-centred interventions.
I have the privilege of working with some of the most wonderful and professional colleagues who I learn from and are dedicated to helping people. I love the opportunities that nursing has given me in terms of my education and the support provided, from the service to advance in my career.
What’s great about Canberra? I've lived in Canberra my entire life, and I think it's a great city - for families to raise children, younger, middle-aged people to build their careers, it has a lot to offer socially, and older people to settle down and have access to all the required services.
It also offers a beautiful landscape and there is a lot to discover. I think Canberra has a lovely sense of community overall. It’s the ideal size for fostering that sense of community.”
