Louise Harper

Department of Health

I came to The Territory in 1988 from Gosford with my girlfriend. We enjoyed what Darwin had to offer with the relaxed lifestyle and opportunity to nurse patients with tropical diseases.

I had initially planned to work 3 months and return home to Brisbane, but it was during that time I met my husband, married, had two daughters and have been here over 32 years. I have worked in medical, renal and alcohol and other drugs. I have enjoyed my working career over these past 30 years.
