Biography

In 2010 I enlisted in the Australian Regular Army as a Nursing Officer through the Long-Term Schooling Sponsorship Scheme. I completed my Bachelor of Nursing at La Trobe University in 2010 and continued to work in a civilian setting at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne for 2 years post qualification. I worked in a variety of acute and surgical departments, focusing mainly on accident and emergency to develop the skills required for my role in the Army.
