My Story

Before becoming a doctor, I completed an Exercise Science degree in 1996. I worked as an Exercise Physiologist and Corporate Health Consultant in Sydney, assisted in the set up and operation of Sydney Heart Image in 1999, Australia’s premier interventional cardiology and preventative health centre. Then... I went to medical school in 2000 to become a doctor. I returned to Perth in 2004, received 2 academic prizes for my work in pre-term birth and in-vitro maturation. My subspecialty training is in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
