I started my career as a registered nurse, working in critical care. I went on to complete a masters of International Public Health and completed the Public Health Officer training program with NSW Health in 2011. I have worked for the past 5 years in public health and communicable diseases control as an epidemiologist, most recently in health informatics for NSW Health, on the North Coast of NSW.
From 2012-2013 I worked in PNG for Abt JTA, as a Health Institution Systems Specialist, from which my interest in Health Systems Strengthening developed.
Through completing my PhD I aim to further develop my skills and knowledge of health system strengthening particularly in relation to health finance, health service delivery, drug procurement and health information systems.
