Maxine Miles

Maxine joined the staff as practice manager in December 2012 when she first came to Australia from the UK to be closer to her family.

Having completed a Biomedical Sciences degree at the University of London, Maxine decided to embark on a healthcare management career and completed the NHS management training scheme. Maxine has had experience in managing a variety of different services at a large London teaching hospital and additionally spent a few months working as a writer for a leading healthcare management publication. More recently, she has completed a Masters qualification in Health and Public Leadership.

Maxine is a mum to 6 year old twin girls and a 2.5 year old who keep her very busy. Between managing a chaotic schedule, she enjoys baking and getting some peace and quiet when walking her dog, Geoffrey.

 

Annie Cabral

Annie became a part of the growing practice in 2010 after a tumultuous time in Real Estate whilst trying to finish her fashion degree. Grateful for the change from verbal renters to vocal babies, she enjoys being a part of the administrative team and aids in the day to day running of the office.

When she’s not making appointments and cooing at babies, Annie is a fashion events manager intern planning runways and mediating between designers and models. To date she has managed both local and international runways, as well as designing for private opera companies.

 

Priya Ramesh Raj

Priya joined the practice in June 2019, shortly after completing a bachelor degree in Biomedical Science. Since working at the Melbourne Neonatal Network, she feels that her knowledge on neonatal care has expanded tremendously. The work experience definitely inspires her to work towards a career in neonatal healthcare. 

 

She enjoys being a part of the administration team and finds that the best thing about the job is the heart-warming smiles we get from our very cute and tiny patients. 

 

During her down time, Priya enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and picnicking with friends and family. She also loves her fair share of baking sessions and movie marathons.
