I was born and raised in Christchurch and studied medicine at Otago University, graduating in 2010.  I started my GP training in 2016 after working in Blenheim, Nelson, and spending a short time overseas. It is great to be back home in Christchurch. Outside of medicine I enjoy photography, tramping, music, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
