AMRRIC Team Spotlight - Lauren Shaw, Business Operations Manager

Lauren Shaw, AMRRIC's new Business Operations Manager

The newest addition to the team, Lauren Shaw started on the 7th January 2019 as AMRRIC’S Business Operations Manager. After resting and holidaying in the Cook Islands and in Adelaide with family and friends over December, Lauren was eager to commence and meet the rest of the team in the new year!

It has been a very busy introduction for Lauren who jumped straight into managing the finalisation of AMRRIC’S compliance transition to a company entity, new contracts and grants, and generally assessing staff support needs and opportunities for improved efficiency in the organisation’s processes.  Lauren has noted an early highlight for her has been organising the first face-to-face meeting of 2019 for AMRRIC’s Board and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group.  These meetings in Alice Springs provided Lauren the opportunity to meet and get to know key people within the organisation who are otherwise dispersed around the country.

Lauren noted, reflecting on her start with AMRRIC: “I moved to Darwin in May 2009 with my partner and we bought and made a home here. We love the weather, community mindedness and landscape of the Territory.  We have had so many wonderful experiences in the Top End and I know AMRRIC will provide opportunities for me to enjoy and create many new experiences and meet many wonderful people and their companion animals, and I look forward to contributing to the many successes of AMRRIC.  The staff are so passionate, friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable – we are a small, but strong team – supported by a great network of experts and volunteers - it feels like I’ve been here for ages already!”
