Originally from the UK, I commenced my career in dental management in the UK over 20 years ago, before moving to the beautiful Sunshine Coast in 2002.
Having gained experience in many walks of life, I was in office administration, accounting, personal assistant, retail and even served as a Police Officer for 8 years in the UK. I then went into dental management. A bit of a varied and colourful career really.
Having settled on the Sunshine Coast, I started working as a Dental Practice Manager. I thoroughly enjoy my profession and branched out 2 years ago and am now happily running CoastWide Smiles Dentalcare. I strongly believe in building great patient relationships and making sure that we provide quality treatment that will last.
I am very patient focussed and all of us here at CoastWide have the same goal... Happy patients and friends, locals who look after one another.
Most of our Team have been the same for many years now and which goes to show we are a happy bunch, respect everyone and who just want to look after our patients. :)
I have 4 children and a house full of animals and enjoy my time with family.
I really love sport, especially running, mountain biking and adventure racing - although fitness is my biggest challenge :) I do adventure racing when I have the time and have done King of the Mountain Pomona and last year did the Queensland Day and Night Run Series. I do watch Soccer and support Brisbane Roar and went to the World Cup Socceroos qualifier in Sydney against Honduras recently.
