Meet The Team
I have over 22 years’ experience in the medical industry, I find my ultimate passion is helping others.
The Glenorie community have welcomed me warmly over the past few months, we are fortunate to have such a kind and caring patient base.
My mission is to deliver outstanding service that cannot be found elsewhere.
I am a registered nurse only recently joining the lovely team at Glenorie District Medical Centre. My most recent nursing experience was at Royal Northshore Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
I enjoy contributing to helping people improve and maintain their health and try my best to make these interactions enjoyable. Away from work I have a family that keeps me busy, TRY to enjoy exercising and I love to read a good romance novel.
I consider myself very fortunate to be part of our team at Glenorie District Medical Centre. I started as Receptionist in 2009, also enjoyed my time in the practice managers role the past 2 years. I have 4 adult children and recently a proud grandma ( farmor ). I love spending time with them all. I am pleased to be part of the community as a local artist from the Art Shack with my partner, Bjorn.
I have worked at the Surgery for almost 15 years and am now the longest serving employee here. I thoroughly enjoy working at the Practice and particularly love interacting with our patients.
Now that my 2 children are adults, I love spending more time with my husband and friends. I love travelling, entertaining and am dabbling with furniture renovation and just a little painting.
I am a junior receptionist and have now been working at the practice for several months. I was lucky to have been welcomed in by such a kind family of doctors, nurses and administration. This position has grown my passion for the health sector and strive to turn my current studies in to a career in the field.
After recently being welcomed by the wonderful doctors, nurses, administration and patients, my passion for helping others has evolved. My passions lie in the medical field and dabble in singing on the side.
