A passionate advocate for POCUS in Australia, in addition to developing leading edge educational programs in her day job, she is a current board member of Australia’s peak representative body – the Australasian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM). Here, among other things, she has been involved in designing and developing a qualification and certification framework for POCUS users.
