I am the Executive Officer & Project Manager for the MothersBabies Study at the Microbiome Research Centre (MRC). I am a dual trained Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife (Distinction), with extensive experience working with children from birth to 18 years of age. Prior to working in clinical research, I nursed in oncology/haematology, neonatal intensive care (NICU) and adolescent health. I joined the MRC in 2017 with a strong background in the coordination of paediatric clinical research, assisting investigators and commercial organisations to develop innovative treatment methods and improve healthcare for children. My passion for the microbiome and how it can impact on the long-term health outcomes stems from my midwifery training – healthy mothers (and fathers) are the key step in making healthy babies and children for the future. I am currently completing my Master of Advanced Nursing Practice, with 3 subjects remaining and due for completion at the end of Spring 2020.
