As General Manager of Medical Services, Fiona delivered an exceptional service to over 50 doctor practices. This included managing all practice management components, while working closely with other Icon departments to ensure seamless patient care and process improvements across the network.
2015 saw Fiona move into the role of Icon Cancer Foundation Acting General Manager as the Icon group expanded, and in early 2016 Fiona was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer for Icon Cancer Foundation.
