Women in Leadership at National 360
At National 360, International Women’s Day is a day where we commemorate and reflect on the amazing progress made by women in allied health, and the wonderful women in leadership we have within the company who lead, support, grow and accomplish wonderful things to ensure we deliver the best outcomes for our clients and clinicians.
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, we are highlighting some of the passionate female leaders we have within our business who are paving the way for more future female leaders within the allied health space. #EmbraceEquity
Heidi, the Founder and Managing Director of National 360, started her business over 15 years ago as a small private practice with just a few clinicians providing allied health services across Melbourne and regional Victoria. By finding passionate clinicians and support staff across the country, Heidi grew and expanded National 360 to become Australia’s leading NDIS provider of Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Physiotherapy, and Behaviour Support allied health services. From just servicing clients in Victoria, National 360 has grown to now service clients across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania.
Being an Occupational Therapist by background, Heidi has had the opportunity to work alongside other team leaders and managers who are allied health trained, which ensures allied health is always at the forefront of her decision making in regard to not only our client services, but also the way we operate and are supporting our clinicians as a company. Heidi is an inspiring leader who has created a company with a culture that focuses on valuing the person, going above and beyond, and raising the bar for our clients, and providing industry leading support to clinicians to help them grow and develop their practice and leadership skills within their allied health careers.

Rebecca is passionate about developing supervision structures for new to practice therapists as well as pathways for clinicians to develop clinical expertise. Through her dedication to her role, Rebecca empowers graduate, early career, and experienced therapists to continually learn and develop their skills to grow within their practice and allied health careers. We are thrilled to have Rebecca’s passion, knowledge and experience being passed on to our clinicians across the country, so they too can grow within their allied health careers as clinicians, and leaders.
