“I was inspired to become a doctor by my father who was a pharmacologist in France, producing medicines for Vietnam and Africa. His devotion to the needs of humanity continues to motivate me to help improve the health and wellbeing of others.

Patients come to me often in their vulnerable moments. Being approachable, non-judgemental, and understanding is the greatest qualities in a medical practitioner; it is an enduring honour to be able to provide support toward positive long-term outcomes for individuals and families alike.

I’m honoured to have the privilege of working with likeminded colleagues at Osler Health International.”

Born in France, Dr Valerie is a French speaking Australian family physician who obtained her Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from the University of Sydney, Australia in 2000.
