I have been a GP in Rotorua since 1987, first with Westend Medical Centre before joining the Te Ngae team in 2004. Born in Rotorua, I trained at Auckland University graduating in 1984 and following this pursued postgraduate studies in Obstetrics and in Aviation Medicine through Otago University. I enjoy the breadth of General Practice – the highlight is caring for many generations within the same family/whanau. My special interests are in dermatology, minor surgery, and aviation and occupational medicine. I am passionate about quality and safety in primary care medicine and am involved in promoting patient safety initiatives and research in this field. Outside of medicine, I enjoy walking and cycling, and hold a Private Pilots Licence and a microlight licence.
I grew up in Auckland and trained at Auckland Medical School, graduating in 1993. I moved to Rotorua to work in Rotorua Hospital as a Junior Doctor before travelling overseas. I completed post graduate training in Paediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynaecology before completing the General Practitioner training programme.
I have been Specialised GP at Te Ngae Medical Centre since 2001. I enjoy all aspects of family helath care, with an interest in Woman’s health and ME/CFS.

I trained in Auckland, and have lived and worked in Rotorua since 1993, working part time while growing my own family. I joined Te Ngae Medical Centre in 2004 as I was keen to take a more active role in running a General Practice. I enjoy the varied mix of ages, social strata and ethnicity found at Te Ngae. I love getting to meet and know people through my work, advocating for them in their health needs and am interested in all areas of general practice. There is never a dull day in GP work and I value the Te Ngae Medical team which make each day amazing. When not at work I can be found at the gym, in the forest, learning bridge or just having quality time with those around me.
