Carly completed her nursing studies at La Trobe University in 2001 where she was awarded the Mental Health Clinical Excellence award. Carly spent her last placement in ICU and from there her passion for critical care began. A born and bred Canberran (Carly and her twin brother were even born here at Woden Valley Hospital!), Carly moved back to Canberra and joined ICU in 2002 - where she knew she had found her place.
For the last 15 years Carly has moved between clinical nursing, education and management roles both at Canberra Hospital and Calvary, whilst also completing her Post Graduate Diploma of Critical Care. Carly is currently finishing her Masters of Nursing.
Carly knows how to enjoy the benefits of living in Canberra, motorbike riding in the winter & summer by the beach with her family. That’s of course when she’s not driving her ’68 Chevrolet Camaro.
