Making cubbies under tables with her grandchildren and appreciating the outdoors are just some of things Andrea Bone, the National Medical Relationship Manager at Icon Group, gets up to in her spare time.
What do you love about your job? And why?
I love my job as I have the privilege to work with amazingly committed, passionate and well trained professionals who always have patient care as the upmost reason they come to work.
How long have you been working in your current role?
I have been working in different roles in our rapidly growing organisation for the past 28 years. I’ve been in my current role as National Medical Relationship Manager for over 12 months, working hand in hand with our new doctors as they come into the group.
Do you have a favourite quote or phrase?
“Breathe like the waves on the ocean”.
What is something interesting about you your colleagues don’t know?
I did own a motorbike and loved it. I would also love to buy a 1953 MG TD or a Vespa.
How do your friends describe you?
Passionate and loyal.
What do you do in your spare time/any hobbies?
I love to spend time with my grandchildren whether it’s making cubbies under tables, cooking, dancing, singing or spending time appreciating the great outdoors.
I love playing tennis, golf, walking on the beach, watching any AFL. One day when I retire I would love to travel more and read.
What is something you want to achieve this year?
On a personal note, I travel quite a lot as part of my role, so I would like to ensure I spend time with my family and time for myself as you never know what is around the corner!
I am really lucky to have the opportunities I have with Icon at this time in my career, so I want to embrace those. You are never too old to take on new challenges!
