I grew up in South Gippsland and moved to Melbourne when I started my nursing degree. I graduated from nursing at Victoria University in 1999 and went on to work at Masada Private Hospital in St Kilda specialising in women’s health, plastics and orthopaedic nursing.
It was whilst working there that I decided to do midwifery.
I was awarded a partial scholarship by Masada that funded my degree and graduated from Midwifery at Monash University in early 2003.
In 2004 I started working at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton. I went on to become an Associate Manager of the Birth Suite. I love the challenges that working in a tertiary setting brings. Mentoring junior nursing and medical staff, but especially trying to give sick women/babies the opportunity to have a “normal” experience in their birth where possible.
In 2015 I commenced work at MPO and love the continuity that working in small rooms brings. The relationship with women and families as they grow is beautiful to be a part of.
I live on the peninsula with my husband Travis and 2 primary school aged children, Darcy and Ava. When not working I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, going to the beach and travelling.
