Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

I grew up in Southwest England. I now live in Brisbane. My career in Medicine has brought me here via NZ over the last 11yrs and I've been in Australia since 2013.

What was your dream job growing up? Is that what you ended up doing?

My dream job when I was really young was a music teacher! (I'm not a music teacher, but I do love the teaching aspect of my job)

What is one of your most defining moments in life?

Most defining moments in life... there have been a few notable ones but the birth of my 2 children I think is the most defining, in the way that after becoming a parent my life changed in ways I never could even imagine.

It has been amazing, exhausting, challenging and rewarding.

What are three of your favourite things to do?

My 3 favourite things to do... yoga, reading and spending quality time with my family (preferably in a sunny destination where someone else cooks delicious food!!)

Your favourite aspect of being in the Leina Broughton Conversations Group?

The LB conversations group - I love this group. It's so refreshing to be part of a space filled with so many different women lifting each other up every day and supporting each other in such a safe space.

Your “go to” LB piece?

My go to LB piece is absolutely my aqua palm Marnie. I adore her.

What is your favourite quote?

Favourite quote "I'm tough, I'm ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay."

If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?

One song! That's tough. Dire Straits Sultans of Swing or Hotel California - Eagles. So hard!! Probably Hotel California.

It’s 2020 – what are you choosing to leave behind and what will you be taking forward into 2020, your new year

After a very big year I will be leaving behind self doubt. I plan to take self confidence into 2020.
