GHG: Tell us about yourself.
I grew up on an organic fruit farm in far north Queensland. Being the eldest daughter amongst seven children, family time was always a big part of my life. My parents had travelled overseas quite a bit and made sure we always knew how lucky we were to have food on our plates and clothes on our back. From a young age I was interested in health and initially set out to be a doctor however towards the end of a Biomedical Science degree started to become more interested in public health. Volunteer experiences in an orphanage for street kids in southern India and later on in a home for young men with developmental delay in north east Thailand confirmed my intentions to work with people in vulnerable situations. Health always comes into play in such circumstances.
