What’s an interesting fact about you?
I love getting dirty whilst fossicking and gardening.
Where are you currently located?
How long is your contract for?
Why did you choose this location?
Another hospital I wanted did not respond in time for my deadlines and I wanted to go somewhere warm that I could explore in my off-duty time.
What have been the highlight of your contract?
There are so many things to visit and see: Crocodile Farm (really interesting), Shell Museum, Thunderegg Farm, Waterfalls, Great Keppel Island/Gladstone/Mt Larcom/Mt Morgan/Yeppoon/Emu Park, Art Galleries, Rain forests, and the seafood is divine.
What do you want your fellow contractors to know about your location or job role?
Although I responded to a Scrub/Scout role and landed in PACU, it was a good change. The PACU staff are fantastic and the people of Rockhampton are incredibly friendly.
What essential items do you take with you when you leave home to work on a contract?
I take half my kitchen in a plastic storage container (contains electric hotplate, frypan, 2 saucepans, sharp knives, grater, sieve, wooden spoons, veggie peeler, mixing bowls, chopping board, pegs, measuring jug/spoons, baking trays) and my trusty Thermos knapsack, which has plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, salt&pepper shakers, tea towels, etc. Towels, my pillow, soap, dishwashing detergent, toilet powder, and washing powder.

Final Word: What is your top tip for other health professionals when choosing their next contract?
Go somewhere new, where the weather suits you, and don’t be afraid there is so much more to learn from others. Also always show your contract workplace colleagues kindness, I like to spoil them by baking biscuits and cookies the peanut butter cookies and milo biscuits seem to be the favourites.
