Profile

I am a fertility specialist, gynaecologist, reproductive endocrinologist, and reproductive surgeon in private practice in the Sydney CBD.  For my patients who require assisted reproductive treatment I work with the fantastic team at Genea - world leaders in fertility (formerly known as Sydney IVF).   I also hold specialist appointments at Sydney Day Surgery, St Luke's Private, and Prince of Wales Private Hospital, and am a conjoint lecturer with the University of New South Wales.  

I strive to provide the highest quality and most up to date clinical care, in a supportive and friendly environment.  I see my role as an educator and guide to help my patients navigate the vast amount of information available on the causes and treatments of reproductive difficulties.  There is no best "one size fits all" approach and as such I enjoy getting to know my patients as individuals during the course of working out what may be hindering their fertility and what treatments suit their particular situation.

When not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, bushwalking, cycling, dabbling in photography or my latest pursuit which is learning to surf.  I'm originally from Melbourne but have now, with my husband, made my home here in Sydney.
