I have been fortunate to now have three locations, on Mondays I have rooms at Goonellabah, Tuesdays are now at Bangalow and Wednesdays will be at Ballina Specialist Medical Centre. I will also be available for telehealth consultations in case a patient is unable to travel to any of my locations.
Please see my full updated contact details and locations above, these are also on my Website. I would greatly appreciate that if you or your surgery could kindly send me the referral letter as soon as it is ready by fax or email or via Medical Objects.
For those that don’t know me here is a little bit about me. My special interests include respiratory and sleep conditions, neonatal medicine, child development, allergies and adolescent medicine. I am more than happy to be consulted on any paediatric issue. In collaboration with an allergist from the Royal Children’s Hospital at Melbourne I am working on organising a local allergy assessment service.
I have an empathetic and balanced approach to caring for children and their families through both clinical and practical experience as a mother of two children myself.
After working in Paediatrics in Berlin and London I moved to Australia in 2003 to continue Paediatric training in Sydney. I passed my FRACP exams in 2007 and became a Consultant Paediatrician in 2011. I am currently working as VMO at Lismore.
Additionally I am involved in the teaching of junior medical staff and medical students from the Rural Clinical School of Wollongong and Bond and Griffiths Universities.
I speak English, German and Spanish and French.
Look forward to continuing our care for our children with you all.
