Assistant Director Health Workforce Reform in Canberra, Australia

Read my blog

I am an Assistant Director at the Department of Health in Canberra, Australia. Everyday it's my aim to leverage my skills and knowledge to authentically help, where I can, to contribute to creating a more inclusive society.

I am very curious by nature and am always inspired by innovation. I love to travel to places I have never been before and to interact with new people and environments. I like to collect tribal jewelry and have some great pieces from Morocco and Afghanistan.

I am passionate about the arts. In my spare time I love to paint, sculpt, dance, go to the theater, read and garden. I also like to reflect and find balance in practicing yoga, meditation and swimming.
