Marie loves weaving threads of ideas together, moving back and forth between research, clinical care, leadership, and advocacy. A typical week might involve caring for patients as a psycho-oncology registrar with Melbourne Health, sitting around the board table of NZ’s fastest growing aged care company, teaching health law at Melbourne Law School, mentoring young doctors through Wahine Connect, and leading research on sexual misconduct in medicine. To keep all these threads from unravelling, Marie does yoga every day at dawn, hangs out with her three teenage kids, and belongs to the best book club in town.
