My name is Fiona Banwell and I am a lawyer and midwife.
I completed my studies in nursing at university and then worked in paediatrics before moving to midwifery. I worked as a nurse for several years and then commenced my studies in law. Once graduated from law my focus was litigation and I worked mainly in prosecutions before moving to coronial matters.
I currently work in Metro South Hospital and Health Service managing the coronial and criminal matters, as well as many medicolegal matters. I have worked in several departments over the years, electing to remain within the government sector.
I currently volunteer at the Caxton Legal Clinic and also sit on the Human Research Ethics Committee for West Moreton. I also have three children and several animals who ensure I am kept busy.
