Throughout her career, Astrid has worked in a variety of medical settings, including Accident & Emergency, Occupational Health, and Practice Nursing. She has gained valuable knowledge and skills in each of these areas, allowing her to provide comprehensive and quality care to her patients.

Astrid has discovered that one of the most rewarding aspects of her work is the level of personal interaction she has with her patients and their families. She values the opportunity to connect with individuals on a personal level and support them throughout their healthcare journey.

Outside of work, Astrid enjoys spending her spare time in the great outdoors. She has a large garden and is currently in the process of redeveloping their small avocado orchard. 

Over my career as a nurse, I have found that one of the most enjoyable aspects of my work is the level of personal interaction that is involved when working with patients and their families.
