Amy’s work as an agency worker has seen her travel and reside in some of the most beautiful and remote parts of Australia.
From Fitzroy Crossing to Uluru to Palm Island to name a few, Amy’s work over the past 20 years as a nurse has seen her undertake some important and some of the most rewarding contracts to help regional communities. It’s also seen her work as an on-set nurse for a children’s TV show and take on some unique and rewarding projects.
After trying to live what she calls ‘a normal life’ – which saw her take a three year full time contract in Adelaide – Amy realised working in regional parts as an agency worker suited her better. She took up a three month contract at Fitzroy Crossing to run a sexual health clinic. She wanted to see if it was a good fit first. Seven months later she has been promoted to a Clinical of Common Health Manager, which will see her look after two more remote clinics. She will be looking after an area the size of Tasmania with a population of around 5,000.
It’s an opportunity she jumped at as she believes it would help her make a real difference and establish a stronger program in a community she has quickly come to love dearly.
When not working, Amy loves to explore her new home and visit the nearby Geikie Gorge and Cable Beach in Broome to unwind.
