I am a retired doctor and have three children and 5 grandchildren. I have lived in Port Melbourne for 6 years. I was a dual trained infectious disease physician and medical microbiologist. I have worked for over 30 years in these fields. As an infectious disease physician, I treated patients in the public hospitals. As a medical microbiologist I worked in pathology laboratories in both private and public including as medical microbiology director at Dorevitch Pathology.
I do yoga and have a passion for bridge. I also wish to be of service to my community and be involved in it. I am on the Fisherman’s Bend Community Hospital Community Consultative Committee. I volunteer with the Sacred Heart Mission’s meals program. I am on the Clinical Governance Committee for CaSPA Care which provides residential aged care. I gave lectures to the U3A Port Phillip members in 2021 on the human body and intend to give this course of lectures again in 2022. I have attended several U3APP course over the four or so years I have been a member.
