I am a General Paediatrician with a special interest in developmental and behavioural paediatrics. I have clinical expertise supporting children with developmental and behavioural differences during various stages of their childhood, from infancy to adolescence, and transition into adulthood. My clinical approach is centred on understanding the unique needs of the individual child within their biopsychosocial context and working together with families to formulate practical management plans in collaboration with allied health professionals, schools and community supports.

In addition to my role at the Child Developmental Network (CDN), I work as the paediatrician at the Mater Refugee Complex Care Clinic (MRCCC), where I manage children with complex developmental and behavioural presentations. Prior to this, having completed my medical degree at James Cook University (JCU) in 2013, I worked at various paediatric centres during my specialist training including the Queensland Childrens Hospital (QCH), Mater Mothers Hospital (MMH), Hervey Bay Hospital and Logan Hospital. As part of my continuing professional development, I am a member of the Australasian Society for Developmental Paediatrics (ASDP) and I am undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Autism Diagnosis (GCAD) through the University of Western Australia (UWA).

Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling the world and I am an avid sports fan.
