I joined the team in December 2011. I grew up in Essex, United Kingdom and studied zoology and medicine at the University of Bristol.
While in Tonga I met my husband, a Whitianga local. I moved to New Zealand to work in Middlemore Hospital and then to the Gold Coast to work in emergency medicine. I returned to New Zealand to complete general practice training which has led me to Whitianga where I now live with my husband, beautiful girls and 2 dogs!
I became a partner in 2019 and am really looking forward to steering the ship! I am very motivated to improve women's, children's and adolescent health. I also enjoy the emergency medicine Whitianga chooses to throw at us.

Yes (What's this?)
