Remembering Julie Pascoe


1 April 2020

To the rt health community

It has been a sad week for all of us at rt health as we pay a special tribute to Julie Pascoe who died on 31 March 2020 following a courageous battle with cancer.

Julie joined the rt health Board in 2011. She held the position of Chair from 2015 to 2019, and Chair of
Transport Health from 2016 to 2020.  She was also a member of numerous Board Committees.

In the nine years she was part of rt Julie deftly guided
the organisation through some of the most significant events in its recent history, including the opening of its dental and optical clinics and the purchase of Transport Health, all amid a challenging and rapidly evolving
external environment.
Julie brought a valuable expertise to the Board including over 30 years of experience in consumer goods marketing and strategic development.  Possibly even more valuable was the passion, commitment and dedication Julie devoted to rt health.  Julie was always a powerful advocate for our members and a proud supporter of all the committed rt staff that serve them.  Julie brought a unique open and engaging tone to the boardroom, a warmth to everyone she met and unwavering support to all those who sought to do their best in any endeavour.  These same qualities enabled Julie to build strong and enduring relationships with her peers at other health funds and many other people across the private health industry.
Julie will be missed but her impact at rt will live on for many years to come.
