After having the memorable opportunity to work in an occupational health setting as a student, this has led to Lara pursuing this field of nursing. Lara previously worked in general practice. Along with all the various responsibilities and skills Lara possessed as a Practice Nurse, she also enjoyed delivering health education and health promotion initiatives. As a highly motivated individual, during that time she also completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Health Sciences. Lara continues to be motivated and inspired by the many opportunities she has to help individuals to improve their health and wellbeing as an occupational health nurse.
