What you do at DTA

I am a Project Pharmacist and a Medication Management Consultant at DTA. My role includes the delivery of DTA medications management consultancy program by working with residential aged care facilities to optimise the use of psychotropic medications. I also participate in and provide support for medication management projects and training delivery.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

My favourite part about my job is the ability to make a difference! I love it when the consultancy program is able to provide support and guidance to residential aged care facilities in making evidence-based, sustainable practice change that will result in a reduction in the use of antipsychotic medications in residents.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Friendly, organised, and daring.

What’s a usual ‘day in the office’ like for you?

Checking emails, following up with the aged care teams that have participated in the consultancy program, meeting with the DTA WA team on events and services.

What’s your favourite font and why?

Times New Roman - traditional and classic!

Something on your bucket list that you’d care to share?

Going on a month-long trip with the family exploring Japan, Korea, and China.
