Meet Anita

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.

We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Australian medical indemnity provider MIGA. This allows us to support more doctors nationally through our career coaching services, specialist consulting and training. We’re pleased to work together with MIGA to support doctors on their path to career success.

Why should you be prepared when it comes to medical career pathways?

The medical field offers a wide array of medical career pathways. You need to carefully consider a range of options that may be suitable for you. Your medical education and training also equips you for many options for nonclinical roles. Therefore, it is important to understand your motivations, skillsets and preferences to ascertain the medical career pathway that is right for you. Once you know what you want to do, you will need to prepare yourself accordingly. I can help guide you through this process.

Also, I help my clients develop additional skills required for their continued professional development and career fulfilment.

    Medical Registrar

    Melbourne

    I can’t thank Anita enough for her assistance in preparing for my interviews and polishing my CV. She is always approachable and her feedback highlighted aspects of my work experience that I wouldn’t think much of but is actually a key differentiator in a job application. I’m glad I enlisted her service and I would encourage anyone at any level to do the same - you won’t be disappointed!

    Professor Andrew Mallett

    Director of Clinical Research, Townsville Hospital and Health Service

    At the outset, let me just say that Anita is absolutely what one needs heading into the stressful process of reflecting on your career path and in potentially making a change in that space. Her calm, supportive and methodical approach was excellent and effective. Spanning from general values-based discussions and career reflections to CV “makeover”, job application and interview preparation, Anita was there to support at every step of the way. I will always appreciate her input and advice as an experienced and informed external career advisor and coach. For anyone feeling in any way “lost” or wondering if a career change or opportunity is in their future, then Anita is the first person to contact and engage. With her help, I’m now in a dream job and in a new career direction that is helping me to live and realise my professional aspirations. Whilst I don’t plan on changing direction or job any time soon, if I ever did then Anita would be the first person I would reach out to without hesitation.

    Timothy RD Scott

    Paediatric Rehabilitation Physician - John Hunter Hospital & Sydney Children's Hospital Network

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

    Dr Alon Taylor

    ENT Surgery Registrar

    Anita was a fantastic asset in preparing me for the the recent round of competitive ENT surgical registrar job applications. She gave insightful and practical advice for improving my CV, we had a number of very helpful interview practice sessions, and offered great suggestions in other less tangible aspects of my career trajectory (such as networking and forming relationships with RACS). I was successful in landing the job I wanted and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others in my situation. I will continue to work with her into the future.

    Eleanor Warwick

    Medical Student 5th year at University of Newcastle

    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.

    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.
