I am completing GP training with the wonderful team at Huon Valley Health Centre in Huonville, Tasmania where I previously completed an intern GP rotation in 2018.

Rural general practice allows you to really become involved and contribute to the health of rural communities.

I’ve wanted to be a rural GP since starting medicine and hope to open a rural practice one day.

My objectives as an RACGP Rural Council member are to represent rural GP registrars and contribute to the development of the rural generalist framework in order to address the existing health issues in rural and remote communities. I have a special interest in Endocrinology and internal medicine and aim to improve community health as a primary care physician.
