Bree PurcellShe/Her Injury Management Partner
Bree has joined InLife as the inaugural Injury Management Partner, bringing with her a rich background in workplace health and safety, disability advocacy, and road safety. After spending several years in Brisbane, Bree, her partner Ralph, and their dog Bronson relocated to Melbourne in December 2022, seeking new opportunities, experiences and cooler weather.
With a solid foundation in healthcare and administration, Bree's career trajectory included roles as a dental assistant specialising in oral maxillofacial surgery, clinical coordination, practice management, claims management, and relationship management. She holds a Bachelor of Health Science, an Associate Degree in General Studies (Science), and certifications in Dental Assisting and Business Administration. Currently pursuing a graduate certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, Bree is dedicated to continuous learning and professional development.
Bree's transition into disability services began during her tenure at WorkCover Queensland, where she served as a case manager and relationship manager before specialising in claims management for serious personal injuries. Her experience deepened at the National Injury Insurance Scheme Queensland, where she oversaw hospital-to-home discharges as a Principal Support Planner.
Attracted to InLife's collaborative approach, strong advocacy for client autonomy, and team dedication, Bree was drawn to the organisation's values and commitment to excellence. Outside of work, she enjoys exploring Melbourne's diverse culinary scene with her partner and furry companion.
