Personal profile


Annette is an early career researcher and registered occupational therapist.

Annette is a Research Fellow in Addiction Studies in the Eastern Health Clinical School, Monash University, working with Turning Point. As Australia’s leading national addiction treatment, training, and research centre, Turning Point seeks to transform the way society provides treatment, specialist care, and support for those affected by addiction. Annette leads an emerging area of research and evaluation of telephone and online services for people experiencing addiction and their families and loved ones. This work aims to address how and to what extent people using Turning Point's telephone and online services are able to access, and navigate, the treatment and support they need. 

Annette has experience in qualitative health services research with expertise in person-centred care for people living with multiple chronic conditions, and the health care professionals who work with them. Annette's doctoral studies explored the experience of care for people receiving a Hospital Admission Risk Program in Melbourne. 

Annette has extensive networks in Australia and internationally with primary care, allied health, and occupational therapy practitioners. Annette has worked clinically as an occupational therapist and rehabilitation consultant, as a service delivery manager with the then Australian Government vocational rehabilitation provider CRS Australia, and in education as a lecturer in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Monash University.
