Hi. I’m Carol. I’ve lived on Phillip Island for about five years but have come here for holidays for as long as I can remember. For a many years we had a holiday house at Summerland Estate until the Government bought it back in 2010. That was such a rare and wonderful place to spend holidays as a child, then with my own children.
I love the life on the island and the easy access to so many great beaches; my favorite is still Summerland beach with its long stretch of golden sand and its good swimming.
When I’m not working I like to write books and read a lot. I love walking the beaches and around Cape Woolamai, and swimming when the weather is good. My garden is full of vegies and now I have chooks again.
I have three wonderful daughters who grew up in Ross Creek near Ballarat where we had acres and an alpaca farm. They love coming to the island and surfing or swimming.
I’ve been a GP for over thirty years and worked in many different places; I seem to like change! I’ve worked as a GP in San Remo and at Safflower in Newhaven and now it seems like it’s time to try Cowes.
I try to practice Holistic medicine, which takes into account body, mind, spirit and soul. I like to spend time with patients to try to get to the core of their issues where I can. I am passionate about helping people heal themselves. I use laser acupuncture and am interested in herbal medicine but can work within the conventional medical framework as well. I look forward to serving the community with Mel Rose at Phillip Island Health.
