    Her primary degree was from Flinders University of South Australia, graduating in 1982.  She trained as an anaesthetist in Plymouth in the UK and worked in Kenya for 12 months before returning to complete intensive care training in Adelaide in 1990.  She then spent a further year working in the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem in ‘93/94. She has a PhD from the University of Adelaide which involved the investigation of abnormalities in gastrointestinal motility underlying problems with the administration of nutrition to the critically ill. 


    She has been the Director of Research in the ICU at the Royal Adelaide Hospital since 1998 and is the chairman of the RAH ICU research committee.
