Alicia Stark — Projects Director

I'm collaborative and keen on driving excellence with experience across the public health sector in projects, product and policy. I've worked within private and government health organisations, but have found my calling in the not-for-profit mental health sector. I strive to bring an element of humour to all aspects of my life and believe in building authentic relationships to draw the best out of people.

The best thing about working at Smiling Mind…

Working for an organisation with such a driven group of people and a motivational vision and plan!

What I do when I’m not at work:

I'm a creature of habit – I spend my downtime with my dog, exercising and getting around all of the food. Repeat every weekend.

On meditation:

A friend got me onto it a few years ago, and I loved it! I dip in and out on how frequently I use it, depending on the speed of life.

My favourite inspirational quote:

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
— Charlie Chaplin
