I have been dental nursing since 1989, from a busy practice in Sydney’s West chairside and practice management. I have been working on the Sunshine Coast since 2009 as a senior Clinical Coordinator to Head Nurse.
I pride myself on excellent communication skills with a nurturing and calm side and am very passionate at what I do.
I actively take part in continuing my education in all aspects of dentistry including jaw growth development.
My husband and I have 2 adult sons. I enjoy cooking, fishing, animals, gardening and having a good laugh.
Front Office Manager
Originally from South Africa – I have been living on the coast since 2016 and love it! I love the laid-back lifestyle. I find joy in going to the beach and finding new hiking trails.
My passion within health and wellness has been an essential part of my journey. In 2017, I completed my training as a Dental Assistant while pursuing my education at the University of the Sunshine Coast. I achieved my degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology in 2020. Furthering my expertise, I complete my postgraduate learning, acquiring a certificate in Exercise Medicine with a specialisation in oncology. With holistic well-being in mind, I truly believe that “Exercise is Medicine”
