Experience

I completed a Bachelor of Midwifery at Southern Cross University in Coffs Harbour surrounded by passionate and caring midwives who taught me the importance of woman-centered care. I have since worked in regional Victoria and a remote mining town in NSW. I have worked in Midwifery group practice and taught antenatal classes. I have worked in antenatal clinic, birth suite, postnatal ward, and supported home births. I have certificates in Spinning Babies, waterbirth, massage, teen sexual health and am currently studying breastfeeding and lactation, and the prescribers course through Griffith University.

Midwifery Interests

I first became a mum at 20. It was this experience that sparked my interest in midwifery.
I am humbled by my work as a midwife in witnessing a woman’s journey into motherhood. Each woman and baby walk a unique path together and I am honoured to walk alongside, offering support, and advocating for individual needs and preferences. I aim to support women to birth with courage and strength, to learn skills in caring for their baby, and to step into parenthood with confidence and joy.

My work as a midwife has taken me to wonderful places in remote and rural NSW and Victoria, and I am always grateful to learn about the Country I work and live on. I look forward to my new role working with the families here in SE Queensland.

Other interests

I am a mother to four wonderful young adults who are spread out across Australia and love nothing more than spending time with them whenever possible. I also love spending time with my two dogs who protect my neighbourhood from possums, loud leaves, and the moon. I enjoy pottery, weaving, knitting, sewing, and gardening. My happy place is in quiet green spaces and I am keen to explore the northern parts of Australia a little more.
