I’m a Paediatrician specialising in Child Development. I studied Science and then post-graduate Medicine at the University of Queensland, graduating with Honours in 2005. I have since worked with children and their families in both hospital and community settings across Queensland and New South Wales. More recently, I have divided my working time between the Child Development Network (CDN) Team and the Child Development Program (Children’s Health, Queensland).
I remain affiliated with the University of Queensland as a Senior Lecturer and I continue supervision junior doctors and medical students.
I love working with children and young people to develop a greater understanding of their unique developmental profile. This allows me to ensure to most appropriate support for them, and their families, on their life’s journey. I believe in a holistic and collaborative approach, targeted towards family-centred goals.
