>> Bec:

The early morning and later in the afternoon, it’s just beautiful here. It looks and feels like you’re in the tropics.

I moved to Rockhampton 4 years ago with nothing by two suitcases and my 2 dogs. I didn’t know a soul here but moving to a warmer climate was a big part of the appeal and I’ve made just an incredible group of friends.

It was quite a big leap of faith but all in all it’s just fallen into place.

We’re a really close-knit team which I think is so important in an emergency department. You get quite deep into your community because this job’s a real leveler. You look after everyone from little babies who are a few days old to people at the end of their life so it’s very varied and the medical staff really trust our skills.

Working with a team that I consider family just makes the work all the more satisfying.

Queensland Health have always been good to me. They’re a great employer. They’ve got good pay rates, good benefits and I always feel really supported.

I love my work but having a really good work-life balance is so important to me.

It’s a really great mix of people here and we all have in common just that really relaxed approach to life.

Any big life change like this is always going to be a bit scary but I’m so glad that I did it.

I absolutely love living here and I love my life here.
