(FRACGP, BMBS, Dip. Child Health, B Nursing, B Public Health and Health Promotion)
Dr Jackson joined Mornington Medical Group in 2018 and has always been passionate about healthcare. Having initially trained as a nurse from 2004 until 2008, she worked for 6 years in the industry before returning to university to study medicine. Since then, she has worked in specialities including emergency medicine, paediatrics, aged care, oncology and palliative care. More recently, she has undertaken extra training in Focused Psychological Skills, which means she can provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other counselling if you have a Mental Health Care Plan. Prior to embarking upon General Practice specialty training, Dr Jackson worked in Ballarat and then at the Austin Hospital in Heidelberg.
In 2017, she and her husband moved to Mornington to become a part of our wonderful community. Dr Jackson spends her spare time keeping active doing pilates and yoga, rugging up in winter to attend our local markets, and exploring the Peninsula with her young family. Dr Jackson is keen to deliver quality, individualised healthcare with a friendly, encouraging smile, and to help patients take control of their health and wellbeing.
She looks forward to meeting you soon.
