Our Team

Ann Jones

Finance and Admin Officer

A vision in teals and ocean blues (her favourite colours), Ann brings her warmth and lifetime of experience to the role of Finance and Administration Officer. After a career focused on office management and finance across many fields (hardware, wholesale, aviation, architecture – the list goes on!) Ann is thrilled to have landed in the ATDC team. Although highly skilled in fixing and improving systems and generally making sure things run smoothly for everyone, Ann also has a creative side, making jewellery and completing a Zentangle every day! With a lifetime of experiences in different situations, Ann cares deeply for the community, and her hopes for the future are that everyone is kind to one another. She sits on the Board of SHE Gynaecological Cancer Group (as the Treasurer – makes sense!) and was attracted to this role with the ATDC because she wanted to work in an organisation filled with good people doing good things. If you interact with the ATDC you are likely to run into Ann – you’ll recognise her by the marine-like colour palette, and her English accent.
