Overall Experience
am a specialist physiotherapist working mainly in respiratory disease, burns and intensive care but also have experience in other areas, such as gerontology, neurology and obstetrics. I have over 40 years of clinical experience in both public and private hospitals, and I am well placed to mediate issues between health staff and family or patients where misunderstandings arise.

Having worked within university environments for many years, I can assist with issues between staff, between staff and students or within research centres.

In addition, my extensive experience in community groups, including agricultural show societies, rural fire brigades and equestrian groups, has made me aware of the conflicts that can arise due to the passionate involvement of volunteers. This insight into the issues in these groups assists in the resolution of conflict.

I have completed a PhD in neonatal intensive care, a Masters in Physiotherapy, a specialist qualification in respiratory physiotherapy (FACP) and a graduate Certificate of Education (Medical & Health Sciences) diploma.

I have also completed a Masters in Health and Medical Law, which involved the study of ethical issues, human rights, medical litigation and patient protection.

I am located in Melbourne but can travel to rural areas and can also conduct mediations via Zoom.
