Adedicated practitioner and advocate of evidence-based complementary therapies for patients with life-limiting illness, Carol has devoted her career to providing holistic care and support to individuals faced with challenging health conditions. She has made it her mission to integrate these practices into conventional healthcare settings to enhance the well-being and quality of life of patients and their families.

Drawing on her extensive experience and expertise, she carefully considers the benefits, challenges and best practices to support safe integration of clinical aromatherapy as a healing modality in specialist palliative care. She is a member of the International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy (IJCA) Editorial Advisory Board and a Fellow of the International Clinical Aromatherapy Network (ICAN).
Carol lives with her husband in the far north of New Zealand where she spends any spare time immersing herself in nature’s beauty by tending their 7-acre gardens.
