Catherine balances her time between general practice at Family Doctors Highton, GP medical education with the RACGP, and managing her three children’s busy lives (and walking Murphy, her boisterous Golden Retriever).

Previously, she has been a Senior Lecturer in Clinical and Communication Skills and a Clinical Advisor to the Indigenous Health Team at Deakin School of Medicine. She an enthusiastic member of the Education Committee of GPME Inc and a regular conference facilitator.
