Hi, I’m Natasha. I joined VTMH as a Psychiatry Registrar in February 2023.
I bring experience from various mental health services including St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, Werribee Mercy Hospital, Mildura Base Public Hospital and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital to VTMH. Through these experiences, I’ve worked with culturally diverse populations across the age spectrum, in both inpatient and community settings, and within Aboriginal health settings.
I have a Bachelor of Medical Science and a Doctorate of Medicine from Griffith University. While I was at medical school, I completed a seven-week placement at a psychiatric hospital in Kolkata, India. This was an incredible experience that opened my eyes to mental health service delivery in a global context.
In my role with VTMH, I will continue to advocate for the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse populations within Australia, supporting lived experience voices and engagement with communities, and building organisational cultural responsiveness across Victoria.
In my spare time I’m into art and crafts, and I’m an avid fiction reader who enjoys stories from across the globe.
