As a medical oncologist who cares for people with cancer. It is my goal to establish trust with my patients and create supportive relationships with them and their families so that we can build an individualised care plan together. As a lifelong sportswoman, I know the importance of teamwork. I have witnessed the strength it gives each member.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, and enjoying the gorgeous Kiwi outdoors.
