She is also qualified to manage and treat pap smear abnormalities, heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, painful sex and contraception issues.

In addition to her work at Eve Health, Kellie also holds a staff specialist position at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. She enjoys teaching and maintains an active role in the training of junior doctors and medical students. Kellie has received an award for her Clinical Teaching from the University of Queensland, where she is currently an Associate Lecturer.
