Background Medical and Health Science
Hi I’m Laura, I grew up on a farm outside Tamworth but before you ask, no I don’t own a driza-bone and don’t spend Saturday mornings listening to the country music channel. I do however love a good social outing, playing touch football, netball and sport in general. Other interests include travel, wine, cheese and board game nights. I took a gap year after school to explore America, Europe and the UK before moving to Wollongong to do my undergrad degree in Medical and Health Science. I loved Wollongong so much I decided to do post grad here. It has been the best decision I’ve made.
Hometown Sunshine Coast
Hi, I am Matilda and I am from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I did my undergrad degree at UQ and worked as an assistant nurse in the Children's hospital to fund my overseas adventures and now I am here! My role as clinical VP is to support the students in their clinical years as well as support the pre-clinical students transition to their clinical years, but I am always happy to help wherever I can. I am always up to chat so if you have any questions or need help with anything, let me know!
Hometown North Avoca
I am originally from North Avoca on the Central Coast of NSW but have lived in both Sydney and London since. I’m a Physio, sports fan, love travel, music, diving and don’t mind a good Dad Joke either. My job is to make your job easier so let me know how I can help. If you have any questions about anything pre-clinical, upcoming events or even where to get the best coffee in town, I’m your man!
Background Medical Science
My name is Ashlee and I grew up in a pub in a tiny little village known as Cooyal, outside of Mudgee. After boarding school, I did my undergraduate at Wagga, honours at the Children’s Cancer Institute and somehow ended up at UOW. During a study tour of Europe, I got offered a job in a pharmacy at home and have been working as a pharmacy assistant ever since.
I am your treasurer for this year. My aim is to assist the committee with organising their activities by making them as cheap/free as possible. I am always up for chats so if ever your in need of a friendly face come and find me.
Hometown Hong kong
Hello from the country side! My name is Henness, an indigenous villager from HK. UOW is my first time in Australia, after studying psychology in York, UK and working in research and advocacy. I wonder if I will ever fully comprehend how massive this country is, but I most certainly enjoy Mount Keira and the Pacific waves. These days I put a lot of effort in to keep my own study-life balance through #uowyoga and many Wellbeing & Student Life activities. I would encourage you to keep your grass green in your most comfortable ways. My role as AMSA Representative is to connect, inform and represent our GSM family with issues that may impact our health and that of Australians. I look forward to serving as your channel between the national body and #ourGSMfamily.
