HISTORY & MISSION

I have wanted to be a doctor since primary school. I have been inspired by many great doctors over the years. I sought and undertook sub-specialist training in maternal medicine and urogynaecology in Ireland and Britain. 17 years ago I returned to my home town of Perth to establish a private practice.

 

Working in a private hospital is an enabler for clinical independence and delivering personalised medical care. I embrace the mission and values of St John of God Healthcare - hospitality, compassion, respect, justice and excellence.

 

I have substantial clinical and research experience in understanding and preventing perinatal loss and recurrent miscarriage.

My commitment stretches beyond my own practice is evidenced in my contribution to St John of God Healthcare's national Obstetric & Midwifery Specialty Committee which oversees our safety and quality programs in our maternity units in WA, Victoria and New South Wales.

 

I am more broadly committed to the health of women and babies across the health system. I am Chair of the state Perinatal & Infant Mortality Committee, having served on the committee for the past 12 years. I also contributed to the state COVID-19 Maternity Response and co-chaired the Antenatal/Postnatal Working Group of WA Health's Syphilis Outbreak Response.

 

Most people know and understand what a great joy it is to deliver healthy babies and be an obstetrician. I am equally committed to the practice of gynaecology. Problems like heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic floor dysfunction, prolapse, pelvic pain and infertility demand sensitivity, compassion and attention.
