MB BS 1995 Lond; FRNZCGP 2013


Originally from England, I qualified from University College London in 1995. I attained membership of the Royal College of General Practice in 2002 and fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice in 2012. As part of my training to become a GP, I worked in the hospital system in both England and Australia. I joined the team here in 2006 and became a partner in 2008.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice, especially the diversity that this brings, including the management of chronic conditions e.g diabetes, hypertension, mental health, women’s and children’s health.

I came to New Zealand with my husband and eldest child Angus in 2002. In 2004 I had my youngest child Emma. I love spending time with my family, going for runs with my dog, and playing squash.
