About Meg

"I grew up on a family farm near Coonabarabran and now live in Gunnedah with my family. I have always worked rurally, graduating from Wagga Wagga, including a stint flying into the Gulf of Carpentaria, and over recent years working in Narrabri and Gunnedah, providing a variety of dietitian services in hospitals and community settings.

I am an enthusiastic and motivated clinician who enjoys rural health care. My family and I live here, so I understand the wonderful aspects of rural living but also the limitations, in particular with health care.

I enjoy working in a team or on my own. I enjoy working with participants, setting goals and working towards those goals.

I enjoy change and have a resourceful attitude to exploring options in a creative manner. I highly value great communication and feel it is important in everything we do. I am able to work collaboratively and seek advice from other providers when needed."
