We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Abbey Flanagan as Account Associate to Team VIVA!

Abbey has relocated to Sydney from her home town of Adelaide to forge a career in health communication, following a stint as the Communications and Marketing Officer for a Not-for-Profit Organisation.

“I developed a passion for health and wellness communication while studying Journalism (notably health reporting) and completing an internship at the Australian Doctor Magazine.

“Working part-time for one of Adelaide’s largest General Practices for four years further consolidated my interest in this area,” said Abbey.

“This real-life experience combined with my communication skills allowed me to land on VIVA!s doorstep.”

Abbey is excited to have relocated to Sydney after spending her whole life in Adelaide and the beautiful Barossa Valley.

“Living in Sydney will be a huge but welcome change from life in Adelaide,” Abbey said.

“I’m looking forward to exploring this amazing city, particularly the areas around our beautiful office in Mosman.

“The view of Sydney Harbour is simply breathtaking and I have no doubts that this feeling will last for a long time.”

VIVA!s Principal, Ms Kirsten Bruce, is delighted to welcome Abbey to her health + wellness communications agency.

“Abbey’s demonstrated passion for the health + wellness sector will further enhance VIVA!s reputation for delivering proactive, innovative, versatile and outcomes-driven work of the highest quality.

“Having specialised in health reporting and worked in a General Practice, Abbey fully appreciates the importance of quality patient interaction and education.

“Her skills-set and drive will add immense strength to our multi-disciplinary team,” said Ms Bruce.
