Peta worked as a Registered Nurse in paediatrics for over 15 years before undertaking her legal studies and being admitted as a Solicitor in 1998. She has worked as a Solicitor with R L Whyburn & Associates and also as a Senior Investigations Officer at the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) prior to taking on a role with the NSW Nurses’ Association in their Professional Team as a Legal Officer from 2004 to 2010 assisting members with Coroner’s matters and professional conduct issues.
