Jane Tinkler
Jane Tinkler Operations Manager of Quality & Service Delivery
Jane trained as an Occupational Therapist after realising that supporting people to be able to dream and achieve was an option for a career.

This passion led her to join Noah's Ark in 2007 because of the alignment of the organisation's values with her own.

Seeing children and families achieve life changing outcomes in her time as a Key Worker, and her 14 years as Team Leader of the Noah’s Ark Albury and Wangaratta teams, has led Jane to focus on high quality service delivery for children, families and staff of Noah’s Ark so that the best outcomes can be achieved, and each child, family and staff member, have the opportunity to maximise their potential. Jane brings her knowledge of service delivery on the ground and integrates this with the best available evidence in her role as Operations Manager of Quality & Service Delivery.
