Meet the doctor

Dr Kaiya is an Emergency Medicine Registrar based in Mparntwe (Alice Springs), in the Northern Territory. 

Dr Kaiya grew up in country QLD and moved to Brisbane to attend Medical School at the University of Queensland. Throughout her time there, she developed an interest in global health and natural therapies, studying abroad in Ecuador and Sudan. 

After graduation, Dr Kaiya gained experience in a wide range of medical specialties, working across the Sunshine Coast Health Service hospitals. She subsequently moved to the Northern Territory where she has been practicing medicine since. Dr Kaiya’s current hospital focus is critical care medicine, including significant physical trauma, protracted systemic infection, renal disease, substance abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault. 

Dr Kaiya is focused on holistic health care, with a special interest in helping patients to avoid pain crises that would see them presenting to ED. She is working to create a future where medicinal cannabis is interwoven in hospital medicine, with a vision for holistic care of individuals and communities. 

When she’s not working, Dr Kaiya enjoys yoga, meditation, long hikes, vegetable gardening, and painting and lives with her partner, dog, and cat.
