I'm a general practitioner originally from Melbourne who caught a travel bug and can't stop exploring the beautiful people and places of our island home.
I love finding new communities and beautiful things in nature. I want to share with you some of the treats I've found and I hope that you'll also be inspired to help look after the people, land and sea that surround us.
I grew up in Melbourne and was one of those kids that always knew I wanted to be a doctor and work in Africa (yes, I thought the continent was a country). I applied to every medical school in the country and finally found my way to the University of Adelaide. I couldn't give up the coffee, fashion and laneways, so returned to Melbourne to finish general practice training where I worked for the iconic Victorian Aboriginal medical service that fuelled my drive toward public health.
After spending several years loving family medicine and general practice, I caught the locum travel bug and left the comforts of the suburbs on secondment to Christmas Island and Nauru. In 2014 I decided to leave home permanently to begin life as a nomadic gp. My work has taken me from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, to Asylum Seeker and Refugee health in Christmas Island, Nauru and Brisbane. I spend most of my time now hunting for adventures in remote Australia with my snorkel and stethescope.
