THE final person to join the hand-picked Wellbeing Superspreader team is the unassuming, smart, quiet achiever, Julie Atkinson.
Jules is a pharmacist for New South Wales Health and a demon hockey player, captaining her team to the last five premierships in the Scone A Grade comp.
She’s just started competing in triathlons and is heavily involved in the Aberdeen Pony Club with her husband Warren.
Julie and Warren also run a few head of cattle on a small farm on the western side of Scone.
You can likely find Julie around Scone Public School with her children Ava and Darcy or at Scone Grammar with her eldest Clay.
Julie joins nine other Wellbeing Superspreaders, who will be trained by a certified Wellbeing Coach in an effort to help the Where There’s A Will (WTAW) Foundation spread maximum positive wellbeing around Scone.
Locals can follow the Wellbeing Superspreader social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram to see regular updates showcasing steps Julie and the other Superspreaders are taking to infect Scone with positive wellbeing.
The Wellbeing Superspreader pilot project is funded by the Hunter New England Primary Health Network and if Scone proves successful, WTAW hopes the outbreak will spread to other towns across the Upper Hunter and beyond, with a goal of achieving widespread wellbeing and good mental health.
