Nurse practitioner (wound management), Wound Healing Community Outreach Service Queensland University of Technology
Master of Wound Care 2007
I first became passionate about wound management when, as a young registered nurse, I worked in a GP's clinic. I'm now one of just a handful of wound care nurse practitioners in Queensland.
When I worked in the GP's clinic, I remember the same patients with chronic wounds that never seemed to heal returning again and again. I wanted to help them.
I've worked as a wound management specialist in the acute sector, community care and aged-care facilities. To complement my experience, I enrolled in the Master of Wound Care and am now one of the few wound care nurse practitioners in Queensland.
