Kara Hilliard

Practice Operations Manager Dip Mar, Cert IV Bus
When away from the practice, Kara can be found immersed in a true crime story, scouring the pages of Vogue, devouring travel blogs and, if all else fails, try Pitt St Mall. A thirst for adventure and a hunger for knowledge, Kara’s spectacular vernacular makes her a dynamic asset to Alana’s admin team.

After completing her marketing diploma, Kara decided to follow her passion for travelling and took a year to explore the top end of Australia.  This adventure was a life-changing journey of self-discovery.  On returning to Sydney Kara decided to pursue a different role which would allow her to combine her administration abilities and still allow her to be in contact with the public, something she has always loved.

With a strong background in administration and marketing, Kara made the leap from the construction industry to the health industry.

Her administration talents were easily transferable and have blossomed through her work at Alana.  Kara has a friendly demeanour and approachable nature and very much enjoys working with and mentoring the entire Alana team and liaising with patients.  A testament to her abilities, in 2015 Kara won the AAPM/Avant scholarship and was awarded the opportunity to enrol in the UNE Partnerships Certificate IV in Business for Health Practice Managers, which she approached with her usual dedication and skill, graduating in 2017.  With Alana’s support, Kara has further completed her Diploma of Professional Practice Leadership through UNE Partnerships.

As Kara continues to grow from strength to strength she is a key member of the Alana team and provides enormous support the other administrative staff, as well as the medical staff.  The move to health has been an exciting and enjoyable learning curve for Kara who is flourishing in her busy and very fulfilling role at Alana.
