New Nurse joins Hepatitis Foundation in Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland)

This month sees Selena McCloskey join the Hepatitis Foundation. After graduating as a nurse in 2006, Selena spent many years working as a Staff Nurse at Starship Children’s Hospital, initially in general paediatrics before specialising in paediatric cardiology.

Bureau nursing after the birth of her second child afforded Selena the opportunity to join Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) during the 2019 Measles outbreak in Auckland. Early 2020 saw the emergence of a new virus of concern sweeping the world and the rest is history!

Throughout the pandemic, ARPHS was Selena’s home away from home as a member of the Covid Response Unit; conducting case and contact management. With the Covid restrictions eased in July 2022, Selena spent a few months supporting the BCG Team to catch up on the backlog of long overdue Tuberculosis (TB) vaccinations for at-risk children before joining The Hepatitis Foundation of New Zealand.

Selena feels privileged to be joining a team of passionate, dedicated, and inspiring colleagues, seeking to better the lives of people with Hepatitis B, and is excited for the variety of opportunities this role provides, from building meaningful relationships with patients to educating GP practices to set up community-based stalls to provide education and point of care testing to members of the public. Selena is very grateful for the flexibility her new role provides and the autonomy and learning opportunities ahead. 

Selena’s other cherished full-time occupation is as a mum to her nine-year-old son and six-year-old daughter, and in her spare time Selena enjoys running, exercising, reading, and spending quality time with dearly loved family and friends.”
