Louise has had a career in the health environment, practicing in both nursing and law. In nursing, she held a range of positions as a registered nurse in Dunedin.

During those years she spent time in the middle east setting up the legal structure of health organisations in Dubai and Doha. While Health Law was the predominant focus, it also involved a range of commercial activities.
Recently retired to Blenheim, she is presently Vice Chair of the Marlborough Primary Health Organisation and volunteers at the Citizens Advice Bureau. In the past, Louise has held committee and Chair positions with the Community Law Centre and Woman’s Law organisations.
