I am a full-time GPT2 registrar training through EVGTP’s metropolitan program, passionate about learning and trainee wellbeing. I was born and grew up in Melbourne, graduated from Monash University, and did four hospital years across Monash Health and the Royal Women’s Hospital. I then took a gap year to locum around Australia and do a part-time masters in Bioethics through Oxford University, where I put it all together and realised general practice was the perfect career path for me! I’ve loved every moment since starting my training with EV.
As travel is unfortunately not permitted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m exploring the varied landscapes and climates of metropolitan Melbourne. From the north-eastern mountainous cool climate of Eltham in GPT1, the laid-back coastal vibes of Seaford in GPT2, to the big smoke bustle and coffee culture of Prahran in GPT3. I’m also excited to be undertaking the academic post at Monash University next year, investigating vaccine hesitancy in older Australians. In terms of interests, I have my Dip Obs and Dip Paeds (SCHP) but am also loving every area of general practice so far. Outside work, I spend lots of my time with my partner and our cheeky 1-year-old doggo, Bindi. I enjoy being surrounded by nature and during lockdown have dabbled in cooking, running, and yoga. When restrictions permit, I love travel, hiking, Bollywood dancing and book club.
Navigating a new training program, an entirely new (and incredibly broad) specialty in a new setting, and three fellowship exams in the space of three years is no simple feat. EV do an incredible job at supporting registrars through this and I’m passionate about doing the same. Hopefully we can find our way together! Please get in touch with any issues or concerns to be escalated, or for a general catch up/debrief over a coffee or Zoom yoga session.
