I am Australian born and grew up in Sydney but I always had an interest in rural general practice. I am currently located in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

Like most general practitioners, the variety of practice and opportunities for long term care of patients attracted me to the GP specialty.

The variety of general practice and opportunities for procedural medicine.

I enjoy making a real contribution to the local community and being active in the community.

Assisting in the care of local patient who had a keen interest in gold prospecting, and then being given teaching to improve my own skills in gold prospecting (unfortunately without much success so far!)    

Representing rural members in Western Australia bearing in mind the large number of members in different parts of this large state.

In particular, ensuring rural members have support and access to maintaining procedural skills and medical education.

My interest in rural practice was enhanced by experiences as a General Practice Registrar in Rural Scotland, with great support by my mentor/supervisor.
