A new FACEM with a recent fellowship year at RCH giving the small people some devoted learning time. A reformed nomad now calling Melbourne home with a very smart FACEM husband and a super cute “threenager”. A career learner and proud (but baffled) recipient of a Buchanan Prize (2013). Happy to be labelled “over excited groupie” to this collaborative learning movement with its fantastic bunch of mentors, educators and motivated learners
