Passionate about improving all aspects of womens’ reproductive and sexual health, Alexandra believes this begins with sensitive and quality gynaecological care through all life stages from childhood to beyond menopause.
This is reflected by her chosen practice name – Before Birth and Beyond Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Alexandra was born and grew up in rural NSW, which is evident in her honest, friendly and down to earth manner.
She is married and has two children and enjoys pottering about in her garden with her family.

She quickly developed a passion for women’s health and a great love of obstetrics, which has only deepened with time. “It’s an honour and a privilege to be a part of each woman’s pregnancy journey, helping her and her baby navigate this safely..” says Alexandra.
Her general obstetric and gynaecology training was predominantly Sydney based at The Royal Hospital for Women and Royal North Shore Hospitals. Committed to clinical excellence Alexandra completed a wide variety of additional courses and training to enhance her skills and knowledge.
Alexandra completed her fellowship training with a focus on paediatric and adolescent gynaecology, minimally invasive surgery and reproductive endocrinology at The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

She continues to hold a clinical appointment as a paediatric and adolescent gynaecologist at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
