I've been a GP for almost 30 years. My practice is in Sans Souci in Sydney and I love it! As a GP I have a special interest in menopause which led to my writing my bestselling book, The M Word , How to Thrive in Menopause. I also have an interest in women’s health in general and am a co-founder of the Asia Pacific HPV Coalition.
While working in General Practice with young children, I headed back to University, to complete a Graduate Diploma of Journalism. I began working part time as a medical journalist for newspapers for doctors and then eventually started working in TV, radio, podcasting and speaking. So, if my face looks vaguely familiar, you might have seen me appear on TV- possibly on Channel Seven’s Sunrise, Embarrassing Bodies Down under on Channel 9 or Medicine or Myth Medicine or Myth on SBS.
Apart from my regular TV spots, you might have heard me on my podcasts. First there’s the Audible podcast, Things You Can't Talk About on TV, that I host with my mate, Shelly Horton. Then there’s Help I Have a Teenager! the podcast I host with Jo Lamble on Mamamia network. I am a regular host of Healthy Living on Nine Radio and my advice can be found in various magazines, such as New Idea where I have a monthly column.
These days, I’m a bit of a slashie.
IIn 2017, I cofounded my own cosmeceutical skincare company, Evidence Skin or ESK where I am the Medical Director. This brand delivers evidence based cosmeceutical skincare in a field often contaminated by inflated claims with no scientific evidence. In 2022, with growing evidence that 10% of women leave the workplace I also co-founded Don’t Sweat It- Menopause in the Workplace, a company that offers comprehensive strategies to help midlife women stay engaged in the workplace without stepping out due to their menopause symptoms.
I have started a small company in consulting in strategy and communications in healthcare for all sorts of health related companies - large and small.
Evidence, Integrity and Ethics are at the core of everything I do.
In 2015, I completed the AICD (Australian Institute of Company Directors) - Company Directors Course in order to further my interest in Governance. I honestly believe that you can turn a profit and yet retain the highest standards of ethics and integrity. I bring these values to my roles in my companies- ESK Skincare and Don’t Sweat It – Menopause in the Workplace. I’ll never say anything I don’t believe in and I will scrutinise the latest scientific data to ensure that what I say publicly conforms with the highest levels of evidence. Which is why, in 2022, I was voted Australia’s most trusted health care professional.
