It is my pleasure to represent the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technologists (NZIMRT) at the ISSRT Council.  My role as part of the NZIMRT is to highlight the work of ISRRT encouraging and fostering support through fundraising on World Radiography Day, ISRRT memberships, and information sharing.

I am Charge Radiographer at Rotorua Hospital, a regional hospital in the centre of the North Island of New Zealand.  My role includes the daily operations management for the department, including responsibility for staff, budgets and project leadership for equipment replacement.  I am a diagnostic radiographer and I have maintained my scope of practice with the majority of my clinical role involving CT Scanning.

I have been involved with the NZIMRT for approximately 15 years beginning in the role of Education Convenor with responsibility for the organisation’s continuing professional development programme.  I have served twice as New Zealand President, an enjoyable yet humbling experience.

I am fortunate in my role to have the support of my husband Gary and my family, Matthew, James and Eilis.  Rotorua Hospital Radiology Department enables me to attend the various meetings and conferences as required and this means being within a national leadership role is possible.  

I see the work of ISRRT as being extremely important to ensure that patient safety during radiation practice is always kept to the forefront across the world.  The ability to share knowledge is vital and I am excited at the early steps towards supporting educational workshops in the Asia Pacific region.  I look forward to continuing to work to raise the profile of ISRRT within the New Zealand radiography community.
