Experience

Following my graduation in 2012, I accepted an opportunity in Rockhampton where I discovered my love for midwifery. Since then I have worked in a variety of settings across Brisbane and developed my experience across all areas of pregnancy, birth and postnatal care. 

Recently I made the move to a continuity of care model and absolutely love it! I am looking forward to bringing all of my knowledge and enthusiasm for pregnancy, birth and babies to my work with My Midwives.

I am a new mother to a gorgeous little boy, Leif, who was born at the end of 2017. This experience has definitely changed who I am as a midwife and has further opened my eyes to just how wonderful and amazing pregnancy and birth can be.

Midwifery Interest

I am really passionate about informed choice. I strongly believe in the power of knowledge and partnering with women and their families to help them achieve their best experience possible. I love helping families and feel privileged to have the opportunity to share such amazing time in their lives.

Other Interests

With my little boy Leif and husband Chris, I love spending time together and with our families and friends. When there is a break from being a new mum, which isn’t often yet. I love working on craft projects as a creative outlet and playing video games.
