Shannon Chabaud

Nurse Manager

Shannon studied Nursing in Wollongong, Australia, graduating in 1996. She got her initial nursing experience in Sydney’s Hornsby Hospital where she worked on an Orthopaedic/ Surgical ward. After two years there, she spent a further two years in the Spinal Unit at the Royal Ryde Rehabilitation centre. She then moved to Sydney’s prestigious teaching hospital, The Royal North Shore, where she worked in the Emergency room.

Shannon has also worked in two rural Hospitals, Pambula and Bega Hospital in NSW. This necessitated her becoming a ‘jack of all trades’, doing everything from assisting midwives to deliver babies to working in the trauma room stabilizing and evacuating major road accident victims. She also worked at the Cairns Base Hospital in a similar role.

After some time off, she began work in Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital filling in on the Nurse Bank in various wards, including Emergency, Cardio/Thoracic and the HIV unit.

The past few years she has worked with Dr. Salmond, sharing her interest in Anti-Ageing and Optimal Wellness. She has since supplemented her expertise with extensive knowledge of vitamin and detox programs, anti-aging therapies and current weight management options.
