After finishing her Medical training at the University of Otago, Anna has worked in many areas of medicine around New Zealand including Wellington, Invercargill and the West Coast of New Zealand. Anna trained in Urology in New Zealand and was accepted into the prestigious Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine, and Urogenital Reconstruction Fellowship at the University of California, and was offered a permanent position there but missed New Zealand far too much to stay long-term.

During her time in California, she gained exemplary skills in Neuro-Urology (Spina bifida, MS, Parkinson’s disease), Neuro-modulation (Interstim and Tibial Nerve Stimulation), and Male incontinence which is unique to New Zealand.  She is the only fellowship trained urethral reconstruction surgeon in Auckland.
