I graduated from a double bachelor degree as a Midwife/Nurse in 2007. After two years of practice in a major maternity hospital in Melbourne, I was lucky enough to be mentored by two wonderful Midwives into private practice. Soon after, in 2011, I founded MAMA with Jan Ireland. Practising privately allows me to care for families in a partnership, where I feel I can give unique, individualised care. I am both extremely passionate about and grateful for the opportunity to work in this way. Another passion in my professional life is Childbirth Education classes; I completed Calmbirth training in 2011 and run skills workshops for Midwives as well as guest lecturing at Universities. I am currently the MAMABirth presenter; which you can read more about here https://www.mamabirtheducation.com/our-team! I have two beautiful young children and a wonderful husband who support me to work in my dream job (on-call work can be a logistical nightmare for families but we make it work). I need running to keep my mind and body calm, and spending time in the outdoors (particularly in the mountains) rejuvenates me.
