International Health Coordinator for Australian Red Cross
Lindah Jury started her career as a Registered Nurse in NZ back in 1995, working predominantly in neuro-trauma.
Moving to Melbourne in 2004, she has had a longstanding relationship with the Alfred Hospital, most recently as a nurse in the Emergency and Trauma centre on and off since 2006.
Lindah completed a Masters of Public Health (international stream) through Monash University in 2010, but not before starting her career as a Red Cross delegate, doing CPR for the first time in a headscarf in Pakistan in 2009. After a mission to Darfur was cancelled at the last minute due to the kidnapping of a colleague, she returned to Pakistan in 2010, before heading off to Iraq for a year in the Kurdish North.
Karma earned her a peaceful mission in Micronesia in 2012, before returning into the heat of conflict in 2014 to Kabul, Afghanistan.
Lindah’s substantive role is as an International Health Coordinator for Australian Red Cross in Melbourne, where she helps to keep staff and aid workers healthy on their international postings.
Lindah lives with her gorgeous husband Peter, and their son, goats, sheep and chickens in the relative peace of the Mornington Peninsula.
