(at number 128) Tuesday 9am – 12.45pm; Wednesday 9am – 11.45am; Friday 3pm - 4.45 pm
I graduated from Manukau Institute of Technology in 2005. since then I have been gathering nursing experience in general surgery and medicine, emergency medicine, maternity, and post-operative recovery, and recently as a practice nurse at Millhouse. Over the last six years I have been studying part time at the University of Auckland where I completed a postgraduate diploma and am working towards Masters in Nursing. I recently fulfilled the requirements for becoming a designated Nurse Prescriber in primary health and specialist teams. I am now authorised to prescribe medicines for common and long-term conditions including diabetes, respiratory conditions like asthma and COPD, hypertension, anxiety and depression, heart failure, gout, palliative care, contraception, vaccines and common skin conditions. I take great pride in my new role and my goal is to provide enhanced and prompt care without compromising patient safety. This wider scope of nursing services allows the practice to provide convenient, timely and practical care, improve access to medicine and minimise double handling of patients.
I live locally in Howick. I have been married to Mark for 19 years and we have three children.
