Pip came to Queenstown in 1996 for family reasons. She was originally employed by Frankton Medical Centre in 1995 and became part of QMC in 2004 when the practice was purchased.
From Invercargill, she attended Southland Girls High School and went on to the Southland School of Nursing qualifying as a Registered General and Obstetrics Nurse (RGON)
Family Health is Pip's main clinical interest. Being a Southland girl she has a passion for tramping and there are not too many walking tracks that Pip hasn't hiked.
