My healthcare journey started straight out of high school and now spans more than 40years. At GreenLane Hospital - then a global leader in cardiovascular disease - I became an NZ Reg Nurse. After extensive experience in a broad range of healthcare settings, I completed triple diplomas in natural therapies in 2004 & opened House of Health in downtown Auckland. Education roles have included lead tutor/lecturer, programme leader & course developer (Wellpark College of Natural Therapies) & NZ College of Massage (BHlthS), lecturer on the Bachelor of Nursing, and now as an adjunct fellow at Southern Cross University, where I contract to the Master of Naturopathy. In 2014 I completed a MHSc [Hons](UofA), and am currently conducting research for my PhD (investigating the gut microbiome and fibromyalgia) via the University of Sydney.
