About

Registered Nurse

I am a New Zealand Registered Nurse with significant experience working with the elderly in their homes, rest homes, and hospital care environments.

I have worked and lived in Christchurch and four years ago moved to Dunedin and made it my home. I have been enjoying working in community settings here in Dunedin and spending time with family.

Experience

I have worked extensively with the older age group. I worked in Aged Care for 15 years and was nurse manager in a rest home for 10 years. I spent 5 years as a practice nurse in a practice of 5 GP's.

I have 6 years community nursing experience. I have worked with palliative care and in long term hospital nursing. I have empathy, knowledge and understanding in supporting people and their families with dementia.

Support

I would like to share my knowledge, expertise and experience with others, enabling them to remain living in their own homes and encouraging clients to lead as active a life as possible.

Providing reassurance and support to family ensuring a coordinated, holistic care package.
