I am a born and bred Northlander having grown up in the mid north. I did my general nursing before I went off travelling and did my Midwifery in Perth, Western Australia in 1988/1989. After my eldest son was born we returned home to Whangarei where I worked at Whangarei Maternity unit for several years before going out into community practice in 1995 with Don Ballard as my midwifery partner. I work from Mill Road Midwives with a wonderful group of midwives in a very supportive environment. I believe in supporting women and their families on this amazing journey into parenthood and in trying to keep things as normal as possible. I love the work I do and believe it is a real privilege to be part of one of the most special times in families' lives.
I am the mother to three wonderful children with my two boys both living and either studying or working in Auckland, my daughter who has just finished school and doing a fitness course in preparation for travelling and then the police force.
