Karen Silva

Practice Manager

I was born on Gadigal land in the sixties. Then moved to the Gomerigal clan area in the seventies where I completed primary and secondary schooling. I am a proud Gamilaraay woman with strong ties to the Dhungutti clan area. My current role is the Practice Manager; I hold 17 years’ service at AMS Redfern.

I attained my degrees for:

  • Bachelor of Nursing 2004 – Registered Nurse
  • Graduate Diploma of Midwifery 2010 – Registered Midwife
  • Graduate Diploma – Professional Practice and Leadership 2019

I have always been interested in Health; I believe my lifelong experiences in Aboriginal designated positions (spanning 40years) in education, employment, social welfare and legal positions has shaped me.
