“Balancing the roles of daughter, wife, mother, patient and doctor, I have come to deeply appreciate the significance of listening to patients’ stories beyond their symptoms. Understanding what my patients are experiencing within the context of their lives is a vital component of my practice.

With fifteen years of both local and international clinical experience, I have developed sound generalist skills and perspective. I utilise these in combination with a compassionate approach to uncover what is going on, whether it is a problem that needs a quick solution, or one that takes a longer and more thoughtful journey together.

I place strong importance on continuity of care, and support individuals and their families as they navigate the medical trends in the media, engage with specialists, and traverse the ups and downs of wellness, illness and new beginnings.

It’s a privilege to be a trusted part of resolving a patient’s source of discomfort, be it physical or mental. I strive to empower my patients to feel stronger and capable of effecting positive changes in their health and am delighted to be part of Osler Health International, where this patient-centric ethos is embraced and shared.”
