"My scholarly interests include using design thinking in health, involving patients in student feedback processes, graduate employability, programmatic assessment and faculty development in clinical education. My methodologies are mostly qualitative, but I try to use mixed methods where I can (especially if I have access to a statistics expert!).
After seven years as an Associate Fellow of ANZAHPE and enjoying the networks I have made in the association, I decided to update to Fellow status to reflect my career developments achieved over this time. Being part of the ANZAHPE Fellowship scheme is valuable in highlighting my expertise in health professions education, especially as I my role has grown away from my former professional identity as a dietitian. As I lead postgraduate programs in health professions education, I would like to inspire clinicians to pursue careers in this area. Being an ANZAHPE Fellow adds to my credentials and enthusiasm to encourage others to join ANZAHPE and promote health professions education collaboration, scholarship and research."
