After four years of refining his skills and knowledge in regional Queensland, Dean and his wife Sarah, a sonographer, felt it was time to set off on a long-awaited adventure: London.
“One of the fantastic things about being a radiation therapist is the opportunity to take your skills not only around Australia, but the world. It was always our intention to live overseas. So we decided to spend two years in London, where I worked as a senior dosimetrist and Sarah worked as a locum sonographer.”
Dean and Sarah returned to Australia in 2017. And when a job opportunity arose for Sarah in Cairns, it was a no-brainer for Dean to return to Icon.
“I’d spent two weeks in the Cairns clinic during my time working at Toowoomba, so I knew it was a great place to work. Everyone really gets on. We’re one of the busiest sites in Queensland, so this positive culture is integral when it comes to our ability to deliver treatment for so many patients.”
Dean and Sarah are well settled in Cairns and have fallen in love with the tropical lifestyle. In fact, they’ve bought a house and have welcomed their first baby boy, Oliver.
