We are family. I’ve got all my sisters and me… We’d love to introduce you to our father-daughter trio, Tony Austin and his daughters Karla and Hayley who not only live together, but have the pleasure of working together in our Royal North Shore laboratory.
Meet Tony, who has been our Courier Manager at Northern Sydney for the past 13 years and is responsible for ensuring precious specimens are taken to our labs for testing.
Karla (left) and Hayley (right) have followed in their Dad’s footsteps and both work in our Royal North Shore lab. Karla is a Technical Assistant in the Specimen Reception Team and Hayley is Technical Assistant in the Sendaways Department.
Karla and Hayley were inspired by their parents’ health careers and that’s influenced their passion for helping people.
Tony enjoys working with his daughters (so he can keep a close eye on them!) and the girls say there are many perks to working with Dad, like getting a free ride to work and raiding his snack drawer! When it gets really busy, they know they always have each other’s support.
Unfortunately, Tony doesn’t have a Dad joke on hand, but every Friday or Saturday night he can be heard asking “where are you going and who are you going with?” – spoken like a true Dad.
As a family, the Austin’s love their two dogs, spending time together in the great outdoors, or on the sporting field, either as players, coaches and spectators.
Tony, Karla and Hayley – caring for others is in your genes and we thank you for everything you do at NSW Health Pathology.
