Tell us about yourself
I was born in Winton, grew up in Townsville, and have spent the last 2 years in Rockhampton completing my Bachelor of Oral Health… I’ve acclimatised to the heat, but I am excited to live in Brisbane where it’s cooler!
When did you decide to become an OHT?
I decided to be an OHT after completing my diploma of dental technology, and was working as a dental assistant at the time. At this time, I also had the privilege to travel to Cambodia and do some volunteer dental work alongside a dentist and this really helped me decide that I wanted to do more to help.
What would you say is your dental philosophy?
Prevention, prevention, prevention! I love educating people about what they can do to maintain great oral health.
How do you keep up to date with techniques, technology and teachings?
I like to do a lot of reading! I also attend courses and workshops to keep up to date with all of the many different parts of dentistry.
As an OHT, what's the best part of your day?
I like meeting new people and getting to know everything about them. I also like being able to help teach or give people advice on their oral health!
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your work?
I’m very meticulous and want to do the best I can for you, and with you.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like going to the gym, the beach and spending time with friends and family. I am a massive homebody so you can’t beat a good movie/TV series at home.
What is something people may not know about you?
I am left handed and have very curly hair.
What would you do if you weren't an OHT?
I’d probably be a pianist.
