I am the proud mother of two busy young boys who keep me entertained and occupied during my time away from work. I am the Medical Director of Tui Medical St Andrews clinic in Hamilton which has an enrolled population base of about 10,000 patients.
I have worked for the past 10 years as a general practitioner in Hamilton and prior to this as a psychiatric registrar at Waikato Hospital for five years. From the many patients and their families who have chosen to have me as their doctor, I have had the privilege of learning about their lives, the difficulties they face and the impact of poor health on their morale and circumstances. I want to make the health system work better for my patients and their families.
