Dr. H also works in Sports Medicine part-time, and has contracted to Cricket Australia and the Newtown Jets Rugby League Football Club over the years.

In addition, Dr. H has a qualification as a yoga instructor. As one of her lifestyle hobbies, she wanted to learn more about the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines.

Her other interests include reading, outdoors, trail running, cycling and swimming. She is currently training for her first 50km Ultra Trail Race (UTA) in 2019.
