Cynthia Leigh Mullens


Year 3 Mental Health and Sociology for Nurses Coordinator

Cindy obtained her Diploma of Nursing in Charlottesville, VA and worked within inpatient psychiatric facilities and the emergency department after graduating until 2001. An opportunity to work in Relief and Development within Central and South America meant the next few years were spent traveling and working in a variety of resource-poor environments.

She obtained her Bachelors of Nursing through Flinders University in South Australia and worked extensively in Aboriginal Health in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. Her Masters of Public Health and Tropical Medicine from James Cook University underpins her focus on public health and firmly established her desire to work towards social and equitable health outcomes, both locally and globally.
