Vicki qualified as a nurse in Australia in 2006. Whilst training to be a nurse she worked as a support worker for people with disabilities, ranging from spinal injuries to autism and learning disabilities.
She started her career in nursing in a private hospital working in the medical palliative unit, before
going through the graduate transition programme so she could join the surgical unit, which had a children’s ward, women’s ward and a high dependency unit. This gave he the opportunity to work in different areas and see where her natural affinity lay.
