Practice Nursing Staff
With a background in providing in Home Care Supports & Services for the Aged Care & Disability Sectors in the community, I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2016. Working at both Sutherland & St George Public Hospitals within Inpatient Mental Health wards and during COVID on the frontline at NSW Health testing centres.
My aim is providing patient centred care across many areas of health to promote and achieve best possible health, wellbeing & recovery. I am dedicated to diversity and inclusion with a strong interest and commitment to preventative care.
A member of Shire GP’s Sutherland Division of General Practice CESPHN and a Community Council Representative, CESPHN.
When not working I enjoy spending time with family and keeping active participating in many outdoor recreational sports.
I originally Graduated with a Diploma of Applied Science, Nursing in Melbourne . As a Graduate RN I was then fortunate to travel to Far North QLD and obtain a job at Cairns Base Hospital. Here I learnt a vast number of Nursing skills along with Traditional Cultural skills & Values whilst providing care to a large Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island population. I thoroughly enjoyed this time working with the infants, parents and Elders. My love of infants and children helped me gain an Associate Charge Nurse position on the Paediatric Ward during my 10 year stay in QLD .
Sydney then became my focus in order to complete my Bachelor of Applied Science –
Major in Neonates. As I studied I worked at Sydney Childrens ‘ Hospital in Randwick as a Clinical Nurse Specialist .
Upon completing another 10 years loving my work with sick Neonates, Infants & Children I ventured into the Community & established 4 “Mother, Baby Drop in Clinics” within the Sutherland Shire .
This offered mums with new babies or infants free Baby Health Checks, advice and support as often as they required.
It was here I sensed the need for Supporting Sleep challenged parents and infants in their own homes and thus went about gaining more knowledge.
I continue to assist families with obtaining optimum sleep whilst working within a very family focus General Practice – Shire Doctors & Dentists.
In my down time I enjoy walking, great friendships and home decorating !
Since graduating from University of Western Sydney in 2006 as a RN I have had the opportunity to gain nursing experience across different hospital settings.
My nursing career began in the area of mental health and that lead me to complete a postgraduate certificate in mental health.
I then decided to follow my passion and spend following years working in the cancer therapy centre and oncology ward at Campbelltown Hospital.
The last two years of my nursing career involved working with children and providing daily medical care as a senior school nurse.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, reading, and long walks.
Originally born in Ireland, I moved to Australia and successfully completed my Bachelor of Nursing degree at Wollongong University. I have worked in mental health for over 10 years and completed a post graduate degree in pathology and cosmetic injectables.
Outside of work I have a passion for volunteering and I have been a volunteer with St John’s Ambulance for 9 years. In both 2021 and 2022, I was honoured to achieve Volunteer Of The Year and to have been recognised for my efforts working on the Covid front line in Australia and New Zealand. I also volunteer with ASTHA free food kitchen providing care, support, first aid and hot food to those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions on the streets of Sydney.
