I started work in the aged care sector, whilst also working in private practice before moving into a busy bariatric clinic seeing patients pre and post bariatric surgery. My passion for surgery lead me to consulting with patients on the wards at Hurstville Private Hospital and subsequently becoming apart of the allied health team, 3 years later and I’m still here!
