Personal profile

Personal profile

 I have been teaching with CSU since 2019 and prior to this I taught for 4 years with Monash University in Melbourne. I bring to you extensive experience as an ICP, spanning a 17 year career with St John New Zealand, starting as a volunteer and working up to ICP level. During that time, I did the Extended Care Paramedic training as I was involved in a pilot programme with a District Health Board where they placed an ICP in a rural ED to help overcome staff shortages. I have also worked on the local rescue helicopter when I was based in Taupo and Palmerston North. I took two years off and did aid work in Kygyzstan (Central Asia) teaching rural ambulance workers (called Felchers) emergency medicine and working with homeless in the capital city. Currently I still work with local Iwi (Maori tribe) where I live, teaching first aid and health promotion.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the intersection of health and wellbeing within the field of paramedicine. My work focuses on enhancing the physical and mental wellness of members of the community, paramedics, improving patient care outcomes and developing innovative strategies to support the invaluable individuals who serve in the emergency medical services.
