I was born in Auckland but grew up in Waikari, North Canterbury. I completed my medical degree at the University of Otago graduating in 2008.

After graduating I spent three years working in the Wellington Region in the hospital system and completed a Diploma of Child Health in 2011.

In 2012 my husband and I moved to Northern Territory in Australia. I completed my GP training in Australia in 2015, including a fellowship of advanced rural general practice. Although we enjoyed the adventurous lifestyle of the outback and tropics we returned to Auckland in 2016 to start a family. My husband Simon works as a pilot for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

I enjoy the challenge of working in rural general practice and I am enthusiastic about providing holistic and preventative care. I am currently studying part time to complete a masters in public health and diploma of travel medicine.

I took some time off in 2018 after having our son Hugo. We are excited to settle in Warkworth area where we are currently building a house on a 5 acre block of land. In my spare time I enjoy bush walking, swimming, gardening and spending time with family.
