#77 Dr Katrina Starmer tells how she was inspired to become a Flying Doctor

View descriptionShare

Dr Katrina Starmer works with our RFDS Queensland team.

This is not the first time Katrina has been on the Flying Doctor podcast. Look up episode #5 and you will hear about the time Katrina was sent out to pick up a ranger who had been mauled by a crocodile.

Katrina tells of how she was inspired to become a Flying Doctor, years ago, when she was out mustering on a remote property that belonged to the family of her school friend.

Katrina is also running a wonderful program called Survive25 which helps teenagers to make wise choices and not end up seeing the Flying Doctor due to misadventures.
