Registered Nurse-Midwife & Credentialed Diabetes Educator
For 16 years I have been working as a paediatric nurse, registered midwife and credentialed diabetes educator across metro, rural and remote healthcare settings around Australia. I fell into my speciality area of diabetes in paediatrics and pregnancy after starting my nursing career in The Kimberley, where I was seeing sub-optimal health and wellbeing outcomes for children and women impacted by diabetes due to inequitable access to healthcare services every single day.
I walked away from The Kimberley determined to upskill in paediatric nursing, midwifery and diabetes education so that I could ensure women and children impacted by diabetes have the best access to education and care in hope of achieving the most optimal clinical outcomes for the mother, foetus, baby and child. In my spare time I invest my energy in building face-to-face and online peer support for mothers and their birthing partners impacted by high-risk and complex pregnancies around Australia.
