A typical day at work was arriving at an ED loading stabilised patients onto stretchers and into the Ambulance. What I learned from this job was the importance of team work and communication among doctors, nurses, nursing management and the patient and their family.

The most challenging role I had, was the Health & Safety Rep for the Hauraki - Cormandel St John District. Personalities and ones interpretation of the laws and trying to explain the changes coming.
This role I had for three years
