I work as medical educator for The Rural Clinical School of Western Australia, reaching academics in 14 widely distributed sites and approximately 90 students per annum, to ensure assessment is standardised, curriculum is well supported, and evaluation is conducted each year.

I am interested in the development of a rural workforce, describing workforce trends, and building local communities of practice. I'm also interested in service learning as a way of engaging medical students' values and transformative learning as a way to change students' perspectives about what's important in their work and life.
