I started my career as a hairdresser, operating my own salon for many years. I always enjoyed hairdressing science and, after attending my first “Introduction to Trichology” seminar in 1980, I became interested in studying trichology; I found the subject fascinating and qualified as a member of the I.A.T. in 1985. Since that time, I have operated my own trichology clinic in Brisbane, Australia.

I enjoy being able to help my patients and this proves to be an extremely rewarding experience; the gratitude they display is very pleasing. Often times they have already tried many other treatments to no avail before consulting with me; our nutritional and supplementation approach to their problems has proved to be very successful.

Trichology has opened many doors for me, especially in the area of teaching, and I find this a thoroughly enjoyable extension to my clinical practice.

Over the years I have been very fortunate to develop many special, long term friendships with fellow trichologists and there has always been, and will always be, a strong support network between us all.

Trichology is a very specialised field and I am sure that all who study and practice this science will embrace and enjoy this very rewarding career, as I have done.
