Her clinical interests are in the fields of neonatal resuscitation both in the delivery room and in the NICU. She served on the Steering Committee of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program from 2012-2017 and is the current chair of the Resuscitation Special Interest Group of the Children’s Hospital Neonatal Consortium. She received her Master of Medical Education from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.

I am a UK-trained Neonatologist working in Starship NICU in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a member of the Douglas Starship Simulation faculty and lead the simulation programmer in NICU. My key simulation interests include education, communication and patient safety. I have been an active member of IPSS since 2011, member of the Education Committee since 2012, am a past Co-Chair of the Education Committee (2017-2018) and a current member of the Board of Directors. In collaboration with others, I established the IPSS-INSPIRE Fellowship in 2018 and am on the working group leading this initiative. My vision for IPSS is to continue to support collaborative knowledge sharing and research development in the pediatric and perinatal simulation community. My wish for IPSS is to see an increasing number of non-physician members and to support and develop the ability of those still at the early stage of simulation.
