She firmly believes that by cultivating knowledge about death and dying, we can alleviate fear and be better prepared.Maria loves being in nature and you will often find her hiking in the bush or playing outside with her husband and children.

Claire moved into a clinical education role 14 years ago and has been teaching a wide range of health professionals, students in tertiary education and of course supporting our Hospice clinical teams with their professional development, ever since.

Her long-held belief is that everyone deserves good palliative care regardless of their care setting. She is passionate about sharing knowledge around death & dying but also learning from others in that process. Palliative Care has taught her to never take life for granted so she loves to get out on her mountain bike, go tramping and she sings second alto for the Hibiscus Coast Singers.
