Since graduating from her Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion degree at Curtin, Becky White has gone on to thrive in the lucrative professional sector. After going on to earn her Graduate Certificate in International Health, Becky worked in a number of senior professional positions, serving as Director at Reach Health Promotion Innovations, as well as Senior Project Officer for the Western Australian Department of Health. Much of her success is drawn from the knowledge, expertise and experience she gained in her time at Curtin, and as she works towards her PhD in the field of Public Health, her legacy continues to flourish and shows no sign of slowing down.
