I completed my postgraduate training in Paediatrics at John Hunter Children's Hospital in Newcastle and Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick, being awarded my FRACP in 2015. I have subsequently commenced a PhD in Paediatric Allergy, with the University of Newcastle, Australia.

I am a Staff Specialist General Paediatrician at John Hunter Children's Hospital in Newcastle, Australia and have a conjoint appointment with the University of Newcastle, providing education to postgraduate paediatric trainees and undergraduate medical students.

I am also an instructor with the Australian Paediatric Life Support group, providing education and training to postgraduate medical and nursing professionals across Australia.
