Biography

I am a motivated junior doctor, with a vision for health equity for all Australians, especially those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and rural populations. By pursuing a Masters of Public Health at the University of New South Wales, I hope to drive systematic transformation as a community leader, collaborator, health advocate and mentor.

 

I believe that the core of leadership is service and other-person centredness. It is immeasurably satisfying to powerfully enact social change through reflection, the collaborative sharing of diverse perspectives and by empowering others to lead. Furthermore, I am passionate about teaching and sharing knowledge with others to form partnerships with vulnerable populations and to inspire the next generation of doctors.

 

Beyond work, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, learning new languages and playing the piano, violin and bass guitar.
