I am an Otago graduate and moved to Nelson in 1980 to complete my house surgeon years and Diploma in Obstetrics. After traveling overseas I entered the GP training programme in Nelson and have remained in general practice in the Nelson region since 1984. A passion for people is what fuels my enjoyment of general practice; I also like the variety of work and being able to offer continuity of care as part of a team. My particular interests are ‘whole person health’ and preventative health. My pastimes include walking , gardening, art and photography and singing in a community choir. I am married with two daughters.
