Margaret spent the first half of her career at the Townsville Hospital before realising the difference she could make to people's lives as a nurse in General Practice. In the primary setting she developed a passion for preventative health and now loves helping people improve their lifestyles so they feel better and live a better quality of life. She moved to Sydney in 2015 and, as a country girl, is surprised how much she loves living in this beautiful city. Her greatest achievement is her role as a mother.  She loves nature, horse riding and the Australian bush.
