Sharon is a senior staff specialist psychiatrist, specialising in psychiatry since 2002. She has spent most of her clinical and academic career focusing on Early Psychosis, having widely published across a variety of Early Psychosis domains since completing her Doctorate in Suicidality and Violence in First Episode Psychosis in 2008. She has worked at the Metro South Early Psychosis team for the past 9 years prior to taking on the lead psychiatrist role at the Mater’s Emotional Health Unit in May 2019. This is a private mental health service existing solely for meeting the unique needs of young adults and represents an exciting opportunity for young people, their families and referrers as this is the first of its kind in Queensland. 

Sharon also has a small private practice. Her clinical interests include early identification of emerging psychotic disorders, young adult ADHD and high prevalence mental health disorders in youth.

 Sharon is the Queensland representative on the Bi-National Section for Youth Mental Health of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP). She has co-convened the 2018 and 2019 Youth Mental Health Section Annual Conferences. Sharon and her committee colleagues are passionate about, and are working towards, establishing a Faculty of Youth Psychiatry within the RANZCP.
