Brief History
I graduated from Manukau Institute of Technology in 2001. I gained experience at Middlemore Hospital focusing on General Surgery and General Medicine with a gastrointestinal + wound care focus.
From there I travelled abroad and worked in London and then furthered my career with invaluable experience doing aid work in Nigeria. Here I worked in a challenging environment with limited medical support caring for 160 orphan boys as their primary carer and also working in the slums.
Upon returning to NZ, I took a short career break and focused on my expanding family. I have 4 children, including twins.
The last 5 years I have worked in primary health care, expanding my skill base. More recently I completed a training programme through The Nursing Council of New Zealand and Counties Manukau Health where I developed the skills and knowledge to prescribe a small range of antibiotics and treatments for Ear, Eye, Throat and Skin infections in otherwise healthy adults and children.
