ABOUT

Julie is a Kiwi import with over 35 years experience in general practice. She owned her own practice in Macquarie, ACT for 16 years and was one of the original GPs at YourGP@Crace when it opened in 2014. She graduated from the University of Auckland and moved to Australia a few years later in 1989. Her 2 daughters grew up in Canberra and she is now a grandma to 5, 3 in Melbourne and 2 in the UK.

Julie and her husband, Wayne, live on a 2 acre property and in 2021 began producing their own olive oil. Wayne makes their own wine, beer and cider with produce from the property. She is a passionate skier and also runs and cycles to keep fit, so don’t be surprised if she routinely questions you about exercise!

Julie’s special clinical interests include skin cancer medicine and surgery, which is now a large part of her practice, and women’s health, but she is happy dealing with all areas of medicine.

Unfortunately, because she still has a large following from her Macquarie practice days, she is not currently able to take on new patients.
