Other Interests

I have in the past been a mad keen endurance obstacle course athlete, competing in 24 hour Tough Mudders at the elite level (just scraped in). A combination of injury and pandemic event cancellations lead me to slack off, so no endurance legs anymore. Now I am here in Hobart, I am working at least getting some hill legs (man, it is STEEP around here). After volunteering at the kMR, I am keen for next year and am casting some side eyes at the Go Nuts 101 and The Rat Race in 2023. I am absolutely in love with my new state which awes me every day and just want to get out and see every inch.

In more sedate interests, I like a good orchid but not adventurous enough yet to dabble beyond the Phalaneopsis and hoping to get a veggie patch going.  I like reading trashy urban fantasy fiction (Illona Andrews, Faith Hunter or Sarah J Maas, anyone?) and am a Boss tragic.

I was born in Melbourne, grew-up & trained in Sydney, & now call Hobart home.

Education

I completed my medical education, including my Advanced Science degree, medical degree and Masters in Medicine at the University of Sydney. I was admitted as a Fellow to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) in 2017. In 2022, I moved to Hobart for the lifestyle and am focusing on my two professional special interests -  skin cancer and gender affirming care.

Skin and Surgical Experience

I cut out my first skin cancer in first year uni while on a Scholarship placement on Kangaroo Island and I have been drawn to skin cancer surgery ever skin. During medical school I took every surgical opportunity presented to me and as a junior doctor I completed terms in general surgery, urology, vascular surgery and orthopaedics. I also spent a year as junior orthopaedic surgeon where I never liked the carpentry side of the surgery but always loved suturing up the skin at the end. I continue to develop my skin cancer and skin surgery skills as a GP and I have competed a Diploma in Dermatoscopy, the microscope used in skin checks, and a Diploma in Skin Cancer Surgery, gaining skills to do advanced skin surgeries like grafts and flaps. I have done skin cancer surgery through out my GP career, working at times in dedicated skin clinics and doing outreach clinics in regional NSW. I am continuing my professional development in the field through attending conferences, participating in masterclasses and engaging in regular educational meeting. I am really excited to be part of the team at Bathurst Street Skin Cancer Clinic.
