Professional biography

Summary of professional experience
I have been a Nurse Unit Manager (NUM) of an 18 bed Level 4 Special Care Nursery since 2009 and have been a neonatal nurse, in tertiary and non-tertiary centres for 18 years. I have had experience in management and education roles.

I have numerous postgraduate qualifications and have been involved in professional organisations including the president of the Victorian Association of Neonatal Nurses for a period of time. I have also published a journal article about neonatal care following some time volunteering in Africa.
Summary of incident review experience
As a manager I have had training in investigations into serious incidents and have managed our ward's clinical incidents for the past 9 years. I have had to conduct more formal investigations and reports for ISR 1 and 2 incidents. I am involved in various Monash Health committees that investigate code blues, incidents and quality issues.
