"My current interests in addition to Health Professions Education are Health Informatics Education, Primary Care, Research and Telehealth. I am a keen researcher in these areas. My favorite pastime is fresh water fishing and exploring the waterways.
I came across ANZAHPE at the AMEE 2023 conference in Glasgow. I met the ANZAHPE representatives at their stall and was really impressed with the information they gave. My main intention in joining ANZAHPE is to network and collaborate with the colleagues in Australia involved in Health Persons Education. I look forward to attending the upcoming ANZAHPE conference in Adelaide in 2024"
