“The values and vision of Next Practice aligned so perfectly with my own that I could not let the opportunity to get on board pass me by. I want to participate in creating a new kind of care for all patients, I want to empower them to play an active role in the management of their health, and make them feel confident that their best interests are at the heart of everything we do at Next Practice Black Rock”

Dr Maureen was born and raised in picturesque West Cork in Ireland. She completed her honours degree in Physiology, then her desire for adventure brought her to Australia where she completed her medical degree at the University of Sydney. Dr Maureen then travelled to Melbourne after her internship, where she worked in the Monash Health network, mainly in Anaesthetics and Intensive Care, but also in medical specialties and emergency. She completed her GP training in Gippsland, primarily mentored by Dr Michael Kunze and Dr James Brown OAM. The experiences she had at their practice motivated, inspired and prepared her to develop a cutting edge practice of her own, with the welfare of her patients her top priority.
