AASTN Queensland Executive Bios

Michelle Carr – Sunshine Coast

AASTN Queensland President
AASTN Website Coordinator

AASTN Education + Professional Development Subcommittee Chairperson

Michelle is originally from the South Island of New Zealand. Michelle commenced practice as a stomal therapist at a bayside hospital in Brisbane in 1998 before joining the Sunshine Coast team in 2001. She was lucky enough to return to New Zealand in 2008 for a year to learn about community stomal therapy from the stoma nurses in Otago, giving her a greater understanding of the challenges faced by ostomates on discharge. Her interests include high output stomas and optimising health literacy to improve health outcomes.

Lorraine Annandale – Sunshine Coast

AASTN Queensland Treasurer

Lorraine is originally from South Africa and moved to Queensland in 2009. She commenced her career in wound management in 2004 and will always be thankful to the Brisbane Metro North community stomal therapy legends Pat Sinasac and Shirley Jones who introduced her to stomal therapy in 2012. She was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to also learn from Brenda Sando and Louise Walker in the private sector before joining the fabulous team at the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Services in 2017. Lorraine took on the role of treasurer to give a little back to the Association built by the stomal therapy greats in the past with the vision for a bright future for the AASTN Queensland Branch.
