The best part of her job is implementing new processes & procedures to improve her colleague’s days so they can focus on what they excel at, looking after our patients… Erin truly believes that “Everybody deserves to feel good”, and together the clinical & non-clinical team can make a powerful impact.

Away from work (which is never, haha!) Erin can be found eating a delicious meal locally with the hubs, being the maddest fur-Mumma to Frank the Springer Spaniel, Ruby the Cocker Spaniel & Lily the Murray River Retriever (did somebody say “crazy dog lady?”) or her sugar hobby of baking & decorating cakes, cookies and all things yummy!
