Julie Heraghty Joins Essilor Vision Board

Julie Heraghty, the former long serving Chief Executive Officer of Macular Disease Foundation Australia, has joined the Board of Essilor Vision Foundation.

Under Ms. Heraghty’s leadership, the Foundation evolved into a robust organisation serving the needs of the macular disease community. The Foundation’s activities resulted in Australia becoming a world leader in awareness of macular degeneration.

Prior to joining the Foundation, Ms. Heraghty spent over seven years as a Policy Advisor to NSW State Ministers, and also served as a director and manager in major government departments. She has served in local government as Deputy Mayor and worked voluntarily for many charitable causes. Her career began as a secondary school teacher and she is also a registered psychologist.

In 2013 Julie was awarded the Harvard Club of Australia Nonprofit Fellowship to attend the course Strategic Perspectives in Non-profit Management at the Harvard Business School. The prestigious fellowship was a personal honour for Ms. Heraghty.
