Christelle is an anaesthetist with a special interest in cancer surgery, in particular breast and reconstructive surgery.
Christelle completed her anaesthetic training in Melbourne, and undertook a fellowship in Simulation and Teaching at the Western Hospital. She subsequently completed a second fellowship at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute where she gained invaluable experience in the perioperative anaesthetic care of cancer patients. It was during this time that Christelle developed an interest in breast and reconstructive surgery and this inspired her to continue working as a consultant aneasthetist at Peter MacCallum.
Christelle has an active role in education with a particular emphasis on simulation training. She has instructed on multiple airway and simulation courses, and is additionally an Advanced Life Support instructor. Her passion for teaching extends across international borders and she has lectured as far away as Mongolia.
Outside of medicine, she enjoys cooking, yoga and travelling the world with her family.
Christelle truly values the quality of care she provides for her patient. She believes every patient, regardless of the complexity of procedure, warrants personalised outstanding care.
