She went on to undertake Basic Physician Training within the Northern Sydney Coastal network, Australia and obtained accreditation in 2011. Her work from Honours project resulted in a basic science paper publication. To complete specialty training in Renal Medicine, further Advanced Physician Training in Nephrology was undertaken within the East Coast Renal Network, which culminated in the award of Specialist in Nephrology and General Medicine as well as Fellowship in the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2014. During this time she has also been actively involved in research projects, producing multiple abstracts and poster presentations in local and regional conferences, as well as a transplant paper publication in 2016.

During her time of specialist training, she spent 18 months at 2 Transplant centres, gaining experience in transplantation medicine at Prince of Wales and Royal North Shore Hospitals, and as such developed a special interest in the subspecialty. With aims of advancing research in the field of kidney transplantation, her future goals would be to engage actively in research projects and expand experience in managing high risk transplantation during time here with the team at NUCOT.
