Born in Taiwan, Phyllis lived in Singapore and Indonesia before settling with her itinerant family in sunny Brisbane. In an impulsive rebellious move, she hopped on the V- line as a 17 year old to attend medical school at the University of Melbourne and has not looked back since.
Phyllis has been actively involved in various college committees since 2011, including the Primary Examination Working group, SAQ Committee and the Court of examiners. She is also a very fortunate Co-DEMT who leans far too heavily on the back of her Co-DEMTs. She has had the privilege of different mentors who have imparted much wisdom and counsel to her through her journey as an Emergency Physician and believes in ‘paying it forward’- by actively training, teaching and advocating for trainees.
At home, Phyllis is mum to 3 noisy teenagers and 1 deaf white kitty. She runs for wind and space, enjoys drams of whisky, barracks for . Western Bulldogs and listens to too many irreverent podcasts
