I have an extensive midwifery and public health background, having worked internationally and in Australia. Clinically, my experience includes managing and providing health care to Indigenous Populations in remote communities alongside local healthcare workers. Additionally I have experience in caring for children and adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes and have proficiency in the acute birthing setting in major tertiary referral centres. I am now embarking on a research career after completing a PhD in comparing maternity paper and electronic health records and the effect these records have on integrating care between pregnant women and antenatal health care providers. I am currently in a lecturing position with the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work at the University of Queensland. My major themes of research are in antenatal, birthing, indigenous and e-information systems, in order to improve communication and access to quality health care.
