She has been a consultant dermatologist at the Children’s Hospital for many years and is still a consultant dermatologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. She has been running a monthly Nail clinic at the Skin Health Institute (previously called the Skin and Cancer Foundation) for around 30 years, the only such service in Australia.
