What is your job title?

Clinical Nurse Specialist – breast care nurse, stomal therapist, wound care nurse

At which Ramsay site do you work?

Greenslopes Private Hospital, Australia

For how long have you worked at Ramsay?

17 years

What is your favourite thing about being a nurse?

Educating patients is a very empowering aspect of my job – helping someone adjust to such a huge body image change like the formation of a stoma (a surgically created hole in the abdomen which allows waste to be collected).

What are you passionate about?

I love watching the huge transition [of patients] in their levels of confidence.

What are your aspirations for the future?

Reach a 30-year milestone here at Greenslopes Private Hospital - still loads of goals to kick. Then retire from nursing and work in a gift shop where I chat to people about pretty dust collectors that none of us need but look beautiful.
