Biography

Angelo Iezzi was appointed a Trustee of the Ileen Macpherson Trust in 1990 after the passing of one of the original Trustees, George Aronowitz. He was a fellow member of the Michael Group with the other founding Trustees: Peggy Macpherson, Alan Earle and Robert Martin. He has had a long association with Anthroposophy, firstly through the Michael Group committee for many years, then a long connection to the Melbourne Rudolf Steiner School at Warranwood as his three children attended, and as a Trustee since 1990. He organized the first working bee for the Sophia Mundi School.

He qualified first as a Civil Engineer, then trained and practised for 30 years as a Complementary Medicine Practitioner in the Rose Clinic which he founded in Surrey Hills in 1986. He completed the International Post Graduate Medical training in Switzerland in 1980. In 2000 he completed his Masters in Counselling and Human Services, together with the Specialist Course in Couples Therapy.

He has had a long interest in Anthroposophy, psychology and astrology and has run seminars in biographical work combining all three.

At 50 years of age he commenced work as a Research Fellow in the Centre for Health Economics at Monash University. After 15 years of fulltime work he semi-retired and now distributes his time between casual academic work, community gardens, building committee work for the redevelopment of the Melbourne Therapy Centre and being a husband, father and nonno.

He is pleased that the work of the trust is in such capable new hands.
