About

I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who is passionate about providing personalised, evidence-based, empowering care.

Originally from Ballarat, I undertook medical training at Monash University, and specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Royal Women's Hospital. I have undertaken additional training in high-risk pregnancy, ultrasound, laparoscopic surgery, and paediatric / adolescent gynaecology.

I believe in enhancing outcomes through optimal education. In recent years, I undertook a clinical education fellow role at the Royal Children's Hospital, I am also an honorary fellow at the University of Melbourne and a training supervisor for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG).

To broaden my skills and knowledge beyond hospital walls, I completed a Masters of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and also worked at the United Nations' World Health Organisation in Geneva.

Outside of work, I love keeping fit and, most of all, treasure time with my family of five (including my groodle, Charlie!).

My own pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood experiences have helped me to become even better at my role in caring for people across this journey. I feel honoured to journey with you during your pregnancy and gynaecological care.
