I was born in Ukraine in 1975 and have grown up in Melbourne since 1988. I attended McKinnon and Melbourne High Schools and graduated from Monash University.

I have been working in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology since 2002. Throughout this time I have worked in many different settings and hospitals – from small rural hospitals to major central tertiary centres:

  • Box Hill Hospital
  • Maroondah Hospital
  • Angliss Hospital
  • Bendigo Base Hospital
  • Royal Women’s Hospital
  • Mercy Hospital for Women
  • Monash Medical Centre
  • Dandenong Hospital

  • Coffs Harbour Base Hospital
  • Ballarat Base Hospital
  • Rockhampton Base Hospital
  • North West Regional Hospital (Burnie, Tasmania)
  • St Vincent’s Hospital (Sydney)
  • Royal Hospital for Women (Sydney)

This breadth of experience allows me to better meet the needs of my patients in many areas. Pelvic pain, infertility, menstrual and pelvic floor disorders are my main areas of interest including advanced laparoscopic and pelvic floor surgery.

In 2011 after obtaining the Fellowship of Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists I have moved to Frankston and Mornington Peninsula to work at Peninsula Private, Beleura, The Bays, Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals.
