About Geraldine

I love to travel, and I spend a considerable amount of my time overseas. Originally from New Zealand, I travelled and lived in the UK for 15 years and have settled in Adelaide with hubby & 2 teenagers.

During my time abroad I helped with a surgical mission and decided nursing was for me.

After having my own children I decided I’d rather be a Naturopath – not that I knew what that was at first! Just that I knew I wanted to stop fighting fires and help at the start of peoples well-health journeys.

So initially I was a hospital nurse in a large teaching hospital, I then trained as a specialist advanced neonatal intensive care nurse. I loved the interaction with parents, supporting them in breastfeeding and the care of their infants and other children. I also enjoyed the adrenaline of the fast paced unit setting…

But my desire to learn more and to travel soon had me on the road again…

Next stop was Melbourne and the Royal Children’s hospital where I discovered graduates doing a graduate programme.

Unlike the UK where at the time you graduated and immediatly could be running a ward, they were in a structured programme. Admittedly my basic nursing training was very different in style, but not content. Here in Australia I was often the only nurse on the ward with additional advanced training and regularly gave clinical talks on the unit to the night staff.

Next stop was NZ and I became a research nurse, interesting, but it was soon time to move again and it was back to the UK with a small child…

Next Adelaide, a 2nd child, and a desire to get rid of the eczema which plagued her after bottlefeeding started… Naturopathy studies and Child Youth Health studies commenced… degree followed advanced diplomas… mentoring and lecturing started soon after.

After 25 years in the healthcare industry, multiple advanced diplomas, degree and post graduate diplomas, I have the knowledge and training to support you in your education journey. Whether that be the very start, the middle or on your return to the workforce.

Please join me in clinical mentorship that will support you and your clinical success and confidence into the future.
