Since 2004, I have been involved in generating over $2.4 million in research funding exploring the health workforce in metropolitan and regional/rural settings internationally and in Australia. I completed my PhD in Health Services Research in 2009 titled ‘An evaluation of the contribution of support workers to the delivery and outcomes of community rehabilitation and intermediate care services in England’. I have worked in academic positions teaching Research Methods to medical and allied health students and implementing, coordinating and supervising higher degree research programs. My most recent employment has been as a contractor for professional associations and other non government organisations providing research assistance, research development and project management. I am also a business partner and physiotherapist in a successful private physiotherapy practice in regional Victoria. I am currently employed as a Rural Health Academic Network research coordinator for Albury-Wodonga Health as part of the Melbourne Medical School, Department of Rural Health.
