Michele's story

After achieving a Bachelors in Science from the University of South Australia, Michele has spent 30 years working in the pharmaceutical industry in research and development and quality control. This included 10 years with FH Faulding.

It was Faulding who provided me with the opportunity to work in the USA on the east coast which was the center of main stream pharmaceutical companies

Michele is currently working for a non- profit organisation — the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative whose mission is to ensure the development of safe, effective, accessible, preventive HIV vaccines for use throughout the world.

Darwin High provided me with a classic science-based education which led me to my current job.
My favourite memory from DHS is the 1973 production of Shakespeare’s' Romeo and Juliet performed for us live by the drama club. I have carried that fascination for live performance through my life and now my favourite part of working in New York City is the ease of access to Broadway.
