Beverley Barton - Board Member

Beverley Barton was born in New Zealand but had her education in Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe.

After completing her Nursing training, she set off to see the world, ending up in Canada where she met her New Zealand husband.

After spending a few years in Toronto, Canada, they returned to New Zealand where Bev continued with her nursing career. 

She has held senior positions within the hospital system in New Zealand and prior to coming to live in Australia, Bev and her husband built and developed an aged care centre in Hastings which eventually had 90 beds including a retirement village. During this time she was also a consultant for the Ministry of Health, auditing aged care centres to meet accreditation.

Bev has been involved in the Sunshine Hospice charity since 2006 and in more recent years in a voluntary capacity headed up the hospice Fundraising Committee.

It has always been her wish to see a Hospice here on the Sunshine Coast and now feels privileged to be accepted on the board.
