Today in The Good Girl Confessional, host Sandy Lowres chats with Dr Vanessa Atienza-Hipolito – Fellow of Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. She is a Clinical Director, Specialist of Breast Imaging and Intervention and solopreneur/business owner at Women’s Breast Imaging (WBI) in Cottesloe, Western Australia.

Vanessa is also a qualified and fellowship-trained subspecialist in Musculoskeletal Imaging, Interventional and Vascular Radiology and Paediatric Radiology in Perth Western Australia.

As of 2022, she is a published co-author of three book anthologies: Courage and Confidence: What It Really Takes To Succeed in Business Global Girls – Find Your Thing;

And The Power To Rise Above – a book I am so proud to have co-authored with Vanessa, and so thrilled that Vanessa reads from her chapter for us on work place bullying. We are so thrilled this book of hope is in the Hollywood Swag Bags given to 2023 Oscar Nominees including Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett and Steven Spielberg, amongst others.

Her notable awards are: Millennial Achiever Award presented by Filipino Australian Club of Perth (2019) People’s Choice Gold Award for the ‘Making A Difference (Local Community)’ category presented by AusMumpreneur (2021) Breast Radiologist of the Year presented by the Radiology Awards (2022) A highly respected Breast Imaging Specialist, Dr Vanessa is also an accomplished speaker, wife, mother and triathlete.

Like many women she faces the stressful challenges of juggling the demands of a career and family whilst taking care of her own physical and spiritual wellbeing. A bright and engaging role model, she always strives to be the best she can both professionally and personally. She is also committed to helping others do the same by sharing the experience and wisdom gained from her own amazing personal journey.

Above all, Dr Vanessa saves lives. It is her personal mission to save as many lives as possible by spreading her message of preventative medicine and detecting breast cancer early using advanced mammogram and ultrasound screening technologies such as used at her business at WBI. Along with her message of physical well-being, Dr Vanessa also enthusiastically speaks on self-care, self-compassion, resilience and overcoming difficulties, providing practical strategies that are easily applied to everyday life.
