“There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater contribution than to help the weak. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well.” Walter Reuther
This is the motto that drives me daily. Everybody deserves to have the opportunity to access satisfaction, particularly in their appearance, as well as in their daily lives. I constantly strive to help people achieve satisfaction in their appearance, which often then translates into satisfaction and success in their lives professionally and on a personal level. Seeing this improvement is what I derive the greatest joy from.
My undergraduate training was completed with first class honours and the University Medal in Pharmacy at Sydney University, and I then went on to study Medicine at the University of Queensland. I have years of experience in general medicine, with past training posts in various areas of Internal Medicine.
Subsequently, I pursued my interest in Skin Cancer Medicine by working at the Coastal Skin Cancer Clinic at Coffs Harbour while completing my Fellowship in General Practice.
I joined this clinic in 2011 after completing the Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) with experience in skin cancer medicine. Since then, I have completed the post-graduate Certificate of Skin Cancer Medicine by the Skin Cancer College of Australasia, and also completed the postgraduate Diploma in Practical Dermatology from the University of Cardiff with Merit in 2013. I am particularly motivated to help patients treat their skin cancers whilst minimising the scarring that results from such treatment(s).
I have also trained extensively with various lasers, and I am a member of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), with Laser Safety Officer certification, and have travelled widely to improve my knowledge of laser medicine. This includes the Nightlase treatment for snoring with our new Fotona laser.
I am an inaugural Full Member of the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA), which was incorporated in October 2014, as well as being a full member of the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA). This reflects my passion for cosmetic medicine.
