Jenny is very excited to be part of the team at Amity Health Centre. She enjoys all aspects of general practice, particularly the continuity of care, and the privilege of getting to know her patients and being involved in their lives. Originally from Scotland, Jenny was initially a research scientist, attaining an Honours Degree in Genetics and a PhD in Cancer Genetics at the University of Glasgow. She then worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Research in Melbourne. It was when in Melbourne that she realized her true calling in life was Medicine, and she returned to Glasgow University to study Medicine. Jenny graduated in Medicine in 2010 and worked for 2 years in Glasgow, in hospitals and in General Practice, before moving to Dunedin with her husband and 3 children in 2012.
Jenny worked for a couple of years at Dunedin Hospital and attained a Postgraduate Certificate in Women’s Health in 2013. She has been working as a GP in Dunedin since 2014 and attained GP Fellowship of the RNZCGP in 2017. Jenny is a member of the Local Otago Faculty Board of the Royal NZ College of GPs and is also a medical educator on the GP training programme.
