I qualified as a doctor in 2002 and as a GP in 2007. I moved from the UK in 2014 and worked in Nelson Bay in NSW before moving to Brisbane and joining Samford Doctors Surgery in 2018.

I love the variety of General Practice and very much enjoy treating people of all ages and backgrounds. I have special interests in women’s health and paediatrics and have postgraduate diplomas in these areas. I fit implanon and Mirena contraceptive devices. I have also undertaken additional training in dermatology and perform skin checks and skin lesion excisions.

Outside of work I enjoy family life with my husband and young daughter. We love to be outdoors and enjoy spending our spare time hiking and cycling.
