As a Naturopath, I’ve assimilated my experience as a Medical Research Scientist with every aspect of patient care. Both skill sets are essential to understanding human health and disease. I completely support many aspects of Orthodox Medicine, but I refuse to miss an opportunity to educate my medical colleagues on the incredible evidence based aspects of Naturopathic Medicine.
The foundation subjects of Medical Science are where the evidence for much of Naturopathy exists; my aspirations are to bring these into focus, either through my lecturing, research, clinical practice or communications work. I have lectured for undergraduate universities since 2008, and at post-graduate level since 2013. I have extensive scientific experience and derive great enjoyment from helping students (and clinicians) understand the more difficult scientific concepts of their studies.
Over the years, my work in Medical Science and Naturopathy has naturally crossed over into medical and health communications.
Currently, I am a senior lecturer with Torrens University in the Bachelor of Health Science degrees. I currently lecture in Nutritional Biochemistry.
I have been a practicing clinician since 2007. As both a Naturopath and a Medical Scientist, I focus strongly on evidence and science based practice.
Since early childhood, I have possessed a love of the sciences, the human body and the desire to never cease learning. After graduating university as a Medical Scientist, I worked in medical research (Oncology/Cell Pathology), for the Royal Children’s Hospital (Genetics), The Australian Institute of Sport (Sports Science/Medicine) and both public and private hospital laboratories (Haematology, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology).
