Samantha qualified from Bristol University Medical School in 2010.   Retrospectively, throughout her training and whole career she has had a deep interest in communication, application, and integration of science with psychology.  She has found her passion in women’s health as part of General Practice. 

Starting her clinical training in North-west London, Samantha subsequently completed Obstetrics and Gynaecology Specialist Training. In 2013 she moved to New Zealand with her husband to accept a job as an Obstetrics and Gynaecology Registrar.  Samantha realised her passion was on developing patient relationships and empowerment and has  hence been working as a GP since 2015.  Based in Hawkes Bay, her clinic, the FemaleGP was established in 2016 to improve access to focused healthcare for women.

​In 2020-2021 Samantha was the Clinic Lead of a GP-led prolapse and incontinence clinic at Hawkes Bay Hospital.  She also works as a Forensic Medical Examiner for sexual assault, and practice General Practice at a local Family Practice.

It has always been her ambition to focus on women's health and run a specialist clinic, where she can bring all of her passions together.  Samantha regularly meets with specialist health care providers from all over the world, particularly those who specialise in women’s health, menopause and reproductive hormone medicine, to ensure she delivers quality healthcare.

She lives in Hawke's Bay with her daughter, husband and dogs.  Out of work, she's either with her family, or running with friends.  She also loves baking and trying her hand at a variety of arts and crafts, particularly with her daughter
