Leanne graduated from Curtin University of Technology with First Class Honours in 1997. She practiced as a hospital pharmacist in both WA and the UK, eventually specialising in the provision of clinical pharmacy services to cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery patients. In 2004, she commenced her academic career at Curtin University before relocating to Hobart in 2008 to undertake her PhD in the School of Pharmacy, UTAS. She completed her PhD in 2012 and has remained at the School as a lecturer. Leanne also holds a conjoint position as a honorary clinical pharmacist at the Royal Hobart Hospital, and remains closely involved with the Tasmanian Branch of the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia.
Leanne's PhD project trialled a service that improved the clinical outcomes of patients discharged from hospital taking warfarin. Her ongoing areas of research interest are the provision of high quality medication-related services along the continuum of care, and optimising medication management for patients with heart disease.
