Welcome Alison Natera – Residential Manager (Freemasons)
25 March, 2022

 Dear Valued Freemasons Residents, Families and Advocates 

Welcome Alison Natera – Freemasons Residential Manager 

I am delighted to inform you that Alison Natera is joining MCT in the role of Residential Manager at Freemasons Home on Tuesday 26 April 2022. With a breadth of skills and experience across the health sector, and a passion and commitment to putting clients and their experience at the centre, Alison is a valuable addition to, and strongly aligned with, MCT and our vision. 

Alison is a Registered Nurse and a skilled health care professional with experience in clinical nurse education, critical care nursing, safety and quality, clinical redesign, and project management. Alison currently works in Hobart in the Department of Health as Nurse Manager in the Statewide Access and Patient Flow Program. It is through this role that Alison confirmed her commitment to delivering client centred care and on ensuring services are available and delivered in ways that best meet the needs of individuals. 

Alison has a Master of Clinical Education (Clinical Nursing & Teaching) from the University of Tasmania, an extensive clinical background in critical care nursing, as well as experience as a Clinical Nurse Educator supporting Registered and Enrolled Nurses in their transition to practice. 

Alison lives in Hobart with her husband and three young children who are all passionate about sport and cycling! Alison volunteers with the Hobart Wheelers Dirt Devils Cycling Club as their Junior Coordinator. 

Alison’s first experience of working in health care was as a Care Assistant in an Aged Care Nursing Home whilst at university undertaking a Bachelor of Nursing. Alison always thought that one day she would return to aged care and so when the opportunity to work with clients and their families as the Residential Manager at Freemasons for MCT arose, it was one she couldn’t turn down 

Alison is excited to move across to the aged care sector to support the development of a skilled and engaged workforce and is passionate about ensuring the residents of Freemasons receive high quality care. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kaz and Suzie for their ongoing support to the Residents and team at Freemasons during this time. Kaz and Suzie will continue to lead the team at Freemasons until Alison commences in her role. 

Yours sincerely, 

Katie Cooley 

Chief Operating Officer
