The travel opportunities and the wonderful people I have met along the way both patients and colleagues.

What are you passionate about?

Within my nursing career I am very passionate about being able to make a difference, I like to be able to provide exceptional care for both my patients and their families. I think sometimes we can ‘forget’ that a hospital is such a foreign place for patients and their families. Attention to detail and positive communication can make all the difference. I’m very grateful that the team within Ramsay Health gives me the opportunity and assistance to provide positive quality care.

I love working at Lake Macquarie Private Hospital, after experiencing many roles around the world I can truly say Ramsay Health is one of my most favourite. As a nurse, you are supported, respected and are part of a community. I enjoy my role as hospital coordinator and I would like to continue on this pathway in to the future as it gives me the opportunity to work with all members of our extraordinary Lake Macquarie team.
