Dr Smith joined Mater Pathology in July 2014.  She gained her medical degree at the University of Otago, New Zealand in 1998.  Her anatomical pathology training was also in New Zealand, and she became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 2007. Dr Smith then travelled to Toronto, Canada where she completed a Fellowship in Gynaecologic Pathology at the University Hospital Network, focusing on gynecologic oncological pathology.

Since relocating to Brisbane in 2009 Dr Smith has worked in both private and public settings, gaining experience across a wide variety of pathology. She is actively involved in gynaecologic oncological research, with a special interest in uterine neoplasia. 

She has a strong commitment to teaching, and after becoming an anatomical pathology specialist she organised annual educational weekends for the New Zealand Anatomical Pathology registrars. She has also been involved with teaching medical students and registrars from other disciplines.

Dr Smith is delighted to join the team at Mater Pathology because of their focus on integrating high quality patient care with involvement in clinical research and education.
