“Throughout my journey in medicine, from the start of my training, I realised that my true passion lies in holistic patient care and forming meaningful connections. Whether through caring for individual patients or entire families, I have come to appreciate the privileged position I hold in understanding their lives and dynamics, and how these factors intertwine with their health.
Over the span of more than a decade as a doctor, I have had the privilege of spending time focusing to various areas, from oncology to trauma and orthopaedics, general surgery to paediatrics, with each experience leaving an indelible mark on me. Witnessing the challenges and triumphs of my patients has taught me the fragility and unpredictability of life, inspiring me to approach each day with gratitude, presence, empathy and kindness.
Beyond medicine, I find solace in the depths of the ocean as a certified rescue diver. Art and notably painting have also always been a steadfast companion; excelling in fine arts before entering medical school, I continued to explore the intersection of art and medicine through specialised study modules. As a GP, I am enthusiastic about nurturing this artistic facet alongside my medical practice, as it enriches both my life and the care I provide.”
