I love everything about general practice. I qualified as a medical doctor in 1990 from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. After working in a hospital for 1 year I decided to go into general practice, and owned my own solo practice in a small town. I was the only doctor in town for 15 years so I got a lot of experience over the years in all areas. After selling the surgery, we moved to a city where I was part of a group practice for 2 years. During this time, I also assisted surgeons during major operations.
My husband and I, with our 2 sons, immigrated to Australia in 2008. I immediately started working as GP in a big medical centre and passed my fellowship exam (FRACGP) in 2010. It is really difficult to choose my favourite part of General practice because I love working with people from all age groups. Female health, paediatric medicine, skin checks and small surgical procedures are special interests.
In my free time, I like spending quality time with my husband and sons.
I am delighted to be part of the Haan Health team, and to live and work in the beautiful Broadbeach.
My approach is holistic and patient centred, with a focus on patient oriented goals. I strive to understand my patients’ health challenges through comprehensive and detailed consultations, and then I work with my patients to optimise their health outcomes and their quality of life. My special interests include adolescent and women’s health, prevention of disease, and healthy aging of the mind and body.
I graduated from the University of Sydney Medical School. Prior to this I had completed a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Psychology, at UNSW. I worked in ED at Lismore Base Hospital for 10 years. I really enjoyed the fast paced work but I was forever trying to follow up my patients progress and decided to train in General Practice. For five years I worked in ED and as a GP and found this to be very satisfying, both personally and professionally.
Outside the practice, I am a mother of 2 grown up daughters, and I love to cook, catch up with friends, and practice pilates.
