As a mother of two young children I understand pregnancy from a woman’s perspective and have experienced firsthand the physical and emotional changes that occur.
My interest in Obstetrics and Gynaecology developed early during my medical studies. I obtained my DRANZCOG in 2008 and completed my Fellowship (FRANZCOG) in February 2018. I have been fortunate enough to train at a number of top Queensland hospitals – including QEII, Mater Mothers, Logan, Rockhampton and Redland Hospitals. Six months of my training was conducted at the Maternal Fetal Medicine unit at the Mater Hospital where I expanded my interest into high-risk obstetrics.
Obstetrics and gynaecology is a constantly changing field, as new and innovative ideas and techniques emerge. I have been and currently am involved in numerous research projects that keep me abreast of best practice treatments.
I get tremendous satisfaction from my work, providing support and guidance through often more challenging pregnancies. Through a collaborative approach, I consider my patient’s goals and needs and ensure they fully understand the options available to them.
My passion for my work has turned me into an advocate for women’s health in general. I have participated in multiple awareness and fundraising events for women’s cancers and assist with part-time teaching and examining of students in my field.
I consider it a great privilege to be invited to support women on their journeys to motherhood, and during my downtime I get tremendous satisfaction from watching my own children grow and adapt to the world around them.
