I am an educator for Monash University in Melbourne - teaching 4th year medical students on clinical placement and in 2014 received the award for GP educator of the year.

I love to pass on expertise and have trained cosmetic nurses and Doctors in the field of cosmetics. Now it is time to pass on skills to others.
