Clare Sutton — Project Manager
I am a passionate project manager experienced in the design, implementation and evaluation of national, state-wide and local public health projects. I have led and coordinated quality improvement, policy implementation and research projects within the mental health and supportive care in cancer space.
I completed an 8-week introduction to mindfulness course a few years ago and after noticing the personal benefits, I continue to integrate mindfulness and meditation into my life as often as I can!
The best thing about working at Smiling Mind…
I'm excited to have the opportunity to use my project management skills in something I'm so passionate about. I feel lucky I get to see and hear about the benefits of mindfulness in improving the mental health of others.

A professional dog patter.
What I do when I’m not at work:
Cook & eat baked goods, attend various arts and crafts classes, enjoy Melbourne's many bars/cafes/restaurants/exhibitions, practice yoga, walk/ride along the Yarra.
It’s something that gives me an opportunity to have the space and clarity to better enjoy and appreciate my environment, those around me and myself.
