Emma

Admin

I have grown up within the FNQ region and recently moved to Mareeba. I have been in the medical field since 2015. I had started in General Practice and worked my way back to Gynaecology / Fertility as I love being apart of Women's Health. When I am not at work, I am at home with my two beautiful danes or you can catch me out the reef or going for a hike!

Jodie

Women’s Health Nurse

Jodi has been a Women’s Health Nurse for nearly two decades. Jodi’s reason for that … the immense passion for providing high quality care for members of her community. As Jodi says, “ a community cannot function without women in it and we must ensure we take care of our healthcare needs”.

Jodi also has a love for taking knowledge and skill to rural areas of Queensland as all women no matter where they reside should be able to experience Birds of Paradise Clinic’s expertise health care provision. The delivery of Women’s Health services to the community by an extremely focussed and passionate team still remain the main joy of my nursing career.

On Jodi’s days off she is often found on the football fields with her 3 sons or hiking the amazing landscape of Far North Queensland.
