Every opportunity is an opportunity to learn.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I use 20+ years of clinical laboratory practice experience to teach, support, assess and inspire laboratory professionals and students. I organise laboratory practicals, lecture, run workshops and promote the biomedical scientist career.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

At school I was fortunate to know find a career which combined my love of biology with a clinical role. I had a teacher who inspired me and with research found that I needed to gain an IBMS accredited biomedical science degree. I was fortunate to find a work placement so that I could train and study part-time.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

I wish I could have entered academia earlier. I loved practicing in the clinical lab, but I have developed a passion for teaching it. Go grab your dreams - with determination, drive, the write support and guidance - anything can be possible.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

Each day is different, biomedical science is an evolving subject. Each new day you learn something new. I share in my students successes. When things go wrong or break -this is when we learn the most.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Every opportunity is an opportunity to learn. If you love biology, health, analytical problem solving and a sense of community and caring - a career in biomedical science may be for you.
