Fabienne joined the Spinnaker Health Research Foundation in April 2017
as General Manager. She works closely with the Board, managing the
overall operations of the Foundation and seeking philanthropic donations
to advance health and medical research.

Fabienne has over 10 years of fundraising experience within the
higher education sector specialising in health and medical research in WA.
Fabienne previously worked at the University of Western Australia for
the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

Prior to embarking on a career within philanthropy, Fabienne worked at the
Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and the Clinical Training
and Evaluation Centre. Before moving to Perth, Fabienne worked in the
community development sector in Switzerland, where she grew up in a
bilingual family, with a French mother and a Swiss-German father.

Fabienne greatly values continuous professional development and
ensures she remains on top of contemporary practices. She has completed a
Bachelor degree in Community Development while in Switzerland,
a Diploma of Management at Curtin, a Masters of Business Administration
and most recently a Graduate Certificate in Social Impact both at UWA.

Fabienne deeply cares about the community she lives in and is an
active member of Impact100 WA which is a collective giving circle that
supports local innovative projects within the not-for-profit sector with
large game-changing grants.

She lives with her partner of nearly 20 years and their two cocker spaniels
in Inglewood and relaxes while gardening, renovating or remaining
physically active.
