My training began in medical school at the University of Melbourne. After my hospital residency I decided to train as a rural general practitioner. In 2016, I was awarded the Richard Gutch Medal for achieving the highest scores in Victoria for the RACGP Fellowship Examinations. In addition to my general practice experience, I have completed formal studies in lactation with Australasian Lactation Courses, Lactation Education Resources and Possums Education. I have also completed a Diploma of Child Health through the University of Sydney. I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and an NDC Accredited Practitioner with Possums.
I am neurodiversity affirming, and have a special passion for working with neurodivergent families.
When I am not seeing patients, you will usually find me supervising and teaching general practice registrars. I am the RACGP Senior Medical Educator for the Warrnambool Region, supporting young doctors in our local rural area.
I live on a rural property outside Portland with my husband and four young children. When I am not at work I drink lots of tea, go for long bike rides and lose track of time in my enormous vegetable garden.
