Biography

A physician and cardiologist with a strong focus on patient centered care with preventative medicine focus. Trained in non-invasive cardiac imaging, particularly non-invasive cardiac assessment. Research interest in health and public policy development, particularly the influence of public policy approaches to health outcomes. Passionate about the social determinants of health. Raised in Melbourne, completed a BA(Hons) in international relations before embarking on Medicine at the University of Sydney. Medical training at St Vincents Hospital NSW and St Vincents Hospital VIC before working as a consultant physician in Wagga Wagga, regional NSW. Medical education and training is a key interest with previous position as Director of Physician Training in Wagga Wagga. Interested and involved with clinical oversight and quality improvement in the hospital and within the local health district, for me some of the solutions in medicine come from improving the structures and systems that are used, and I enjoy being part of that process.
