Bio: I am a recently graduated Registered Nurse. Prior to working as a nurse I have been in healthcare as a project manager and policy analyst. I am currently working in sexual health research with gay and bisexual and palliative care with adults and children. Prior to that, I have 8 years of experience in the healthcare/pharmaceutical industry in hospital administration, project management, market research and privacy. My experience on JET is not directly related to my current career but provided me with transferable skills, such as facilitating workshops, designing
health education using learning principles, cultural sensitivity, flexibility and adaptability.
