Desiree joined the ORH team in 2007. She has always wanted to be involved in a mission and as a Filipino she is thrilled to be able to get involved with ORH in the Philippines. In Sydney, Australia Desiree works as a Clinical Nurse Specialist/Consultant within the Anaesthetic Department at Westmead Hospital. Although Desiree was born in Sydney, most of her relatives originate from the Philippines. “This experience has given me the privilege of working with a great team of people, all with the same goal of helping the local community of Caloocan”.
