I have always enjoyed exploring new places and experiencing new cultures. After completing my ultrasound degree and working in hospitals for nearly 2 years in Canada, the itch to travel was increasing. I began looking for work across the globe and Australia immediately caught my attention. A quick search on the web led me to GHS and they were in contact with me the next day. My journey towards living in Australia has been an adventure and worth every moment.
Within a few weeks I had my Australian Institute of Radiography application sent through as well as my working visa. Unfortunately, the AIR did not accept my qualifications as soon as I’d hoped. My application took several months and I was growing impatient. Joanna and Patricia from GHS encouraged me to continue my experience in New Zealand, as it is not only an amazing country but also a foot in the door to Australia. I accepted a full time position in Auckland, received NZ registration and packed my bags within 6 weeks!
I absolutely adored New Zealand! I initially signed up for 6 months, however the AIR still required more work experience so I happily extended my stay for another 8 months. Throughout the year in NZ I travelled the country from the very south to the north tip, hiking the great walks, trailed through beaches and bush lands, and even ran my first marathon. GHS deserves a huge thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet so many amazing Kiwi’s and explore such a picturesque country.
Nearing the end of my contract I was finally accepted by the AIR. The ladies at GHS helped me extend my NZ visa while organizing my Australian visa and hunted for a new job in Queensland.
Since day one, Joanna has been honest, understanding and very approachable. Her hard work and patience landed me a sonography position on the Fraser Coast of Queensland. I have been here for 6 months now and loving it!
I cannot thank the ladies at Global Health Source enough for helping me move to Australia. They continue to stay in contact with me via emails and personal phone calls to ask me how I am doing. I would highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for work overseas.
Thank you GHS for your help and support. I look forward to working with you for my next adventure.
