I am a full time mostly public anaesthetist who has enjoyed supporting trainees and fellows for the last three years on the ANZCA Council, particularly in the educational field. It has been a steep learning curve for me but I now feel comfortable and able to contribute significantly to council business. If re-elected I hope to continue this work and help to maintain the very high standard the college sets for our profession.
