Identifying individual interests and strengths to establish a personal profile. Working within a collaborative framework to create a flexible career plan.
My passion is helping people to proactively manage their careers and experience the elation that comes with landing each individual person’s dream job. My objective is to provide services that enrich people’s careers and, in turn, their lives.
As a highly experienced Medical Career Coach I am the founder of an advice-based specialist consulting practice. This work allows me to indulge in my passions for writing, public speaking, and coaching people to understand and convey their value so that they can realise their potential.
I have a deep understanding of the many and varied complexities and challenges of a career in Medicine and the opportunities that exist for doctors outside of Medicine.
This understanding comes from:
- 5+ years running the Medical Careers Advisory for the Australian Medical Association
- Engaging with thousands of doctors within Australia and internationally while working with Australia’s peak body for medical professionals
- A 25-year background in business operations management and HR
In my career, I too have experienced the feeling of being stuck and had to learn how to make the moves required to get past that. I’ve also learned the importance of “doing the work” required to make necessary changes.
My expertise, in combination with personalised assistance and career-related training services, results in significant progress toward greater career fulfilment for doctors and others within the health sector and beyond.
Why should you be careful when it comes to medical career pathways?
The medical field offers a wide array of medical career pathways. You need to choose the right option that is suitable for you. The medical field has many sub options for various pathways as well. Therefore, it is important to pick the right journey among the many medical career pathways. Once you know what you want to do, you will need to prepare yourself accordingly. Don’t worry! I can help you decide which medical career pathway is suitable for your skills and qualification.
Also, I help my clients develop additional skills required for their chosen journey.

I worked with Anita when applying for Junior Medical Officer positions. Anita worked closely with me to ensure my CV was at an exceptional standard and that my selection criteria address and CV were best structured to reflect my skills, strengths and experiences. Anita’s personalised and supportive approach to the job application process is strengths-based, assisting you to reflect on what makes you a stand-out candidate and communicate that effectively. Her well-organised, efficient sessions are guided by your goals. Her additional insights into career planning, professional development and organisation were invaluable. I plan to work with Anita further in future, and would definitely recommend Anita to any of my colleagues, at any stage of their career.
I have worked with Anita closely towards my SET interview. I wish I had met her earlier. She is an amazing human being. Walked me through it all and literally beat the Imposter Syndrome in me. Unfortunately I did not get onto training but she helped me secure a great job at a reputable hospital. I did not see myself working there for some reason. I look forward to getting on training with Anita's assistance in 2021.
I highly recommend Anita for her help in my career progression; fantastic feedback and advice; greatly appreciated indeed.

I've worked with Anita on several projects and events delivering career advice and building interview skills for young doctors. At all times, Anita has displayed a depth of knowledge and willingness to accommodate the needs of AMA (ACT) and our members that is second to none. Combining her depth of knowledge with a calm, structured manner means that I have no hesitation in recommending to future business partners.

She is flexible in her sessions and we met in person, over the phone and through the Skype platform. She provided content which was relevant to my level of skill and the college I was applying for. I am very grateful to have worked with Anita, and can proudly say I was successful in my application for specialty training! Thank you Anita.
