I have been involved with ambulance since 1986 following a 6 year career in nursing. My ambulance training was initially in Melbourne where I worked for 6 years before moving to Wonthaggi station in East Gippsland. Moving to Tasmania in 1994 I began working for Ambulance Tasmania where I trained to Intensive Care level. I have worked in Launceston to the present time and currently hold the position of Regional Education Coordinator.
