Ms Jacqueline Schmidt-Busby
I have expertise in strategic planning and management, operations management, human resources management, and programme management. With over 25 years’ experience, I have held positions within the Ministries of Defence, Justice, and Health, IT, local government, and both the engineering and telecommunication industries. During the past six years, I have managed local and regional health projects that focus on initiatives that span both clinical and social sectors. Combining knowledge and experience with current evidence, I take a strategic approach to actions that facilitate the assessment, development and implementation of quality and safety improvement initiatives to advance positive health outcomes.
I am of Samoan descent and have a Master of Health Sciences (Hons) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management - both from the University of Auckland. Currently I am working towards my Doctor of Philosophy degree, where I expect a completion date of August 2019.
