Biography

I am a proud Registered Nurse, humanitarian, and passionate advocate for environmental sustainability. Through my work volunteering with organisations such as the Oaktree Foundation, AusAid, the Australian College of Nursing and the Climate and Health Alliance; I fervently believe that leadership must be deeply grounded in a desire to improve the communities in which we live and work.  In previous years, I have been recognised as an Emerging Nurse Leader with the Australian College of Nursing and have been a finalist in the Tasmanian Southern Cross Young Achiever Awards.

 

I am undertaking a Master of Leadership in Health and Human Services to build my capacity to shape healthcare systems to be more accessible, equitable, sustainable and nurse-driven.
