Volunteer Experience

RFS Firefighter: On completion of my High School Certificate, I immediately joined my local RFS, aiming to volunteer my spare time to assist my community. From devastating house fires to local fundraisers, I believe I truly achieved this and developed a greater appreciation for community.

Event First Aider: 2019 Iron Man, FOTSUN music festival, Rhythm & Vines and 2019 Coastal Walk Against Domestic and Family Violence; During my time in university I chose to repeatedly volunteer as events first aid to maximise my hands-on experience. These opportunities allowed me to gain valuable clinical and social experience whilst also receiving high quality mentorship.
