Following earning my Bachelor of Midwifery from the Australian Catholic University I have worked as a “Midwife on the Move” at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH), where I have worked across all areas within women’s and newborn services. I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to care for women through the RBWH’s Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU) by supporting women and their families who have experienced pregnancy loss.
Pregnancy, childbirth and the transition to parenthood is a profound time in a woman’s life and for me, supporting women and their families during this amazing time is an absolute honour. It was not until I had my own children that I realised just how awesome we (women) are! So much so, I was inspired to change my career and decided to become a midwife. For me, being a midwife is about empowerment. I feel so privileged to walk alongside a woman and to be able provide them with the support and education they need to be confident in their ability to make informed decisions about their pregnancy and birth.
I love spending time with my husband and three kids. We love camping, basketball, tennis, cricket (I’ve had to ‘learn’ to love cricket….. and I am still working on it!) and going to the beach. I also don’t mind a bit of me time and enjoy snuggling up on the couch with a cuppa and something entertaining to watch on TV.
