Personal Summary

I am a newly graduated and registered paramedic from NSW, Australia. I have a keen ambition to work overseas in a new and exciting environment. My family is heavily involved in the healthcare industry and my brother is severely disabled. It was through these experiences I developed a life-long passion for helping others. I have worked and studied in Australia my entire life. Completion of a bachelor of clinical practice (paramedicine) at Charles Sturt University (Bathurst Campus) has allowed me to devote time to mastering the necessary skills to fulfil this dream. Through my experiences, I have developed a high threshold for uncomfortable situations. I believe my ability to seldom feel discomfort makes myself versatile. My time spent as secretary Mitchell Rugby demonstrates I am passionate about giving back to the community. The year I spent as secretary affirmed the fact I want to help people for a living. Traveling around the Central West I was often put in a situation where I had to practice what I had learnt in class, as the ambulance were often half an hour away. I have completed two 180 hour placements in bushland NSW, and metropolitan Sydney. Both offered a vast array of emergencies. Both taught me valuable lessons and further strengthened my clinical and interpersonal skills. Working as a carer for a quadriplegic is a constant reminder that there will always be people who need help. It cements in my mind that health care is one of, if not, the most important profession within society. It allows me to maintain my clinical composure skills and practice empathy daily. I have been a carer my whole life and would thrive off the opportunity to follow my passion in a high paced, professional environment.
