About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Physician Assistant, Clinical Officer
Location Nkhoma, Malawi
Introduction I am a Physician Assistant working abroad in rural Malawi, Africa for the next 18 months at the Nkhoma Mission Hospital. Four years ago, I made my first trip here to assess the needs for burn victims in the area. Due to the overwhelming demand for specialized training I decided to start a program which would mentor local staff on wound care, surgical intervention and help create prevention strategies to help better serve burn victims in Malawi. On my time away from the hospital, my husband and I enjoy the view off our veranda, sharing good food, entertaining with a braii and taking the occasional excursion across Malawi to see new sites and relax! We foster 2 dogs, Ellie and 14 year old, Malu the Galu. I have left behind 2 dogs in the care of my family and best friend, Oliver and Lily. I miss the familiar faces of friends and family and hope they will consider making this journey that I am positive will be the trip of a lifetime! Malawi has a way of creeping into the soul of those who visit, leading them to return time and time again. Exactly what happened with Will and myself!
