Aurora Todisco has 15 years’ experience of driving financial management through passion for Accounting, Banking and HR.
Her career started in the private sector coordinating legal, tax and contributory management aspects related to the remuneration of the personnel for an Italian firm.
Since she moved to London, in 2014, she developed an interest to health related living habits, and how individuals use their finances trying to make informed choices on aspects like nutrition, transport, etc.
She knew she could make a positive contribution to the charitable sector linking her background skills to a new Public Health inquisitiveness attitude.
This reason leaded Aurora to join a different role as the Finance and Information Officer at Healthwatch Tower Hamlets, HWTH gathers experiences of health and social care users with the aim to shape quality of services.
Being the first generation of EU migrant in her family, when starting to place the bases to rebuild her new career in a different setting, she made a deep work, reconsidering herself as an individual. The main reason is that she acknowledged that her past choices went smoothly, without ever been preoccupied about the future.
The transition has been the reason why she developed strong ambitions, coining also her motto: “I overcame huge challenge to achieve something truly remarkable”.
She now has a clearer picture and try to support ethnic minority women through the journey post migration.
Aurora also is a Patient Participation Group Member at her local GP practice, member of East London Citizens’ Panel – East London Health and Care Partnership, BARTS Health NHS Trust, East London NHS Foundation Trust.
She is an active component of Healthcare Financial Management Association and a Value Marker (London Network) – NHS Future-Focused Finance.
She has been recently awarded for the Leadership Foundations Edward Jenner programme – NHS Leadership Academy and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Primary Care Management – The National Association of Primary Care and Healthcare Financial Management Association.
She has another role at volunteer level as Treasurer (East London Support Group Finance Contact) – Parkinson’s UK.
