Caroline

RECEPTION

I have always had a great sense of adventure, especially to travel. I spent 12 years working for Qantas Airways as ground staff which enabled me to fulfill my dreams. I am still married to a very grounded man of 26 years whom I met at Qantas and had two beautiful girls, who are now 24 and 21.
My mother was awarded  an O.A.M. for her contribution to community health and I realized how important it is to help people from all walks of life. Through her hard work  and influence, I was awarded Life Governor of Royal Women’s Hospital. I have spent 7 years working in Medical practices and have now joined Orrong Obstetrics &
Gynaecology with a great group of people.
I love a good party and spending time with my true blue friends who always bring a smile to my face. I play Comp Tennis once per week, go to the Gym, Tap Dance, swim in Summer & Winter.
