Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove
Lynne Cosgrove (née Payne) was born and raised in Sydney’s southern suburbs. After attending Penshurst Girls High School, she studied art, then worked as a layout artist and copywriter in the retail fashion industry before spending several years in the finance sector. She travelled widely overseas during this period.
In April 2016, Her Excellence Lady Cosgrove accepted the role of Patron of the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners.
Lady Cosgrove has been actively involved in the welfare of partners in the defence community and became the inaugural Patron of Partners of Veterans Australia. She has worked with numerous voluntary organisations supporting aged and disabled people, and endangered Australian wildlife.
Her interests will assist the ACNP to achieve greater recognition and inclusion in the health workforce, which will ultimately benefit the Australian population.
