Originally from the UK,Kirsty Short has been working at St. Vincent’s Emergency for 2 years. She moved to Australia 4 years ago after finishing her study at Birmingham University and started work in a hospital in Brisbane. She soon transferred to St. Vincent’s Hospital after hearing on the grape vine what a great work environment it provided.
Recently promoted to the role of Registrar, Kirsty is facing more responsibility than ever in her career. While it’s sometimes daunting, she is enjoying having the support of her younger sister Jo who moved to Australia and joined the St. Vincent’s Emergency team 4 months ago. Despite plenty of sibling rivalry between the two as children, the two British sisters are getting along famously at work and are enjoying getting to know each properly for the first time in years.
