Experience & Qualifications
Angela trained in obstetrics and gynaecology through John Hunter Hospital after graduating from Newcastle University with honours. After completing a fellowship through the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne she returned to Newcastle and established a paediatric and adolescent gynaecology program servicing Hunter New England as well as the Central and Mid North Coast Health Districts.
During her time in Melbourne Angela was exposed to the importance of fertility options for gender diverse patients as well as young people faced with malignancy or severe medical illness. Angela completed a Master of Reproductive Medicine and Graduate Certificate in
Clinical Innovation to augment her knowledge in these important fields.

She is passionate about young people not being limited by their periods and works closely with local paediatric and pain specialists to achieve this.
Married to a Kiwi who couldn’t resist the Australian weather with 2 children, Angela loves Newcastle. She enjoys being active in the local primary school community and early morning running.
