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.

Final Year Medical Student
Thank you again Anita for your help with my cover letter and CV. You were very thorough with your feedback and I would highly recommend you to my colleagues. I really appreciated how you were able to help me clearly articulate my skills and career achievements concisely and ensuring that the important parts were clear to see.

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.

Anita is extremely professional and supportive in advising on transition to senior medical roles. She is a great asset to have on your side.

As a junior doctor trying to enter a highly competitive specialty, having Anita’s guidance with career counselling, application and interview preparation was incredibly effective and reassuring. I received numerous interviews and job offers, and have accepted a new role which challenges and directly advances my career. I would not hesitate to recommend Anita to my medical colleagues (although truth be told, I would selfishly like to keep her services a secret!).

I contacted Anita while figuring out my transition to a new career and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Her vast range of experience in the medical and corporate sector was valuable with updating my resume and particularly in interview practice. With her expertise, personalised service, and encouragement I was able to confidently and successfully transition into a different career path and I'm so grateful!
I highly recommend Anita for her help in my career progression; fantastic feedback and advice; greatly appreciated indeed.
