About Olivia

Practice Nurse, BNurs

Olivia has over six years’ experience as a Registered Nurse. After graduating from Deakin University in 2015 she completed her graduate nursing program at Eastern Health, rotating on both a surgical specialty ward at Box Hill Hospital and on the palliative care ward at Wantirna Health. Upon completion of the program, she spent four years at Box Hill Hospital nursing on the Orthopedics & Plastics surgical ward. This was followed by working as a general practice nurse assisting the local community with both acute and chronic health conditions.

For some time Olivia has been interested in the benefits of medicinal cannabis, particularly for those with chronic conditions where traditional first-line therapies have not been effective. She is passionate about de-stigmatising medicinal cannabis in Australia and its potential in helping patients improve their overall wellbeing.

Outside of work, Olivia enjoys going to see live music, baking and living on the Mornington Peninsula with her husband, twin little people and Irish Wolfhound Obi.

Olivia is available for eligibility screenings and follow up appointments.
