Background and Experience
Nicole completed her medical training through Monash University, graduating with honours whilst completing additional study in medical ethics. She undertook paediatric training through the Victorian Paediatric Training Network, which involved working in a range of settings across Victoria (including the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Children’s Hospital). She also spent time working in the Northern Territory at the Royal Darwin Hospital.
Alongside her work at the Victorian Children’s Clinic, Nicole currently works as a general paediatrician at Monash Children’s Hospital and lectures medical students at Monash University. Outside of her clinical work, Nicole is interested in researching health care delivery, looking at how health care systems can be improved to better support families of all backgrounds.
Nicole is passionate about a holistic, family centred approach to child health. She understands that every child and family is unique. As a parent of two young children herself, Nicole understands the challenges that can accompany parenting, and aims to work closely with parents, teachers and allied health professionals to achieve the best outcome for each child she cares for.
In her spare time, Nicole enjoys hiking, reading and spending time with her family and friends.
