Concurrent to her medical studies she is an employee at the Brisbane Eye Clinic. She has travelled widely throughout a number of developing countries, which has given her a heightened awareness of the global inequalities in health care. She eagerly anticipates the trip to Manali as a chance to become involved in an international and underprivileged community in a medical capacity.
