Gold Coast Nursing Awards

VIDEO: ‘Loopy’ Lisa awarded 1029 Hot Tomato Gold Coast Nursing Award

She’s known as ‘Loopy’, but she is anything but.

Lisa ‘Loopy’ Kiddle won 1029 Hot Tomato’s Gold Coast Nursing Award for July for her amazing work in Nepal.

As the founder of Aus-Nep, Loopy organises surgical and dental camps to travel to Nepal to help those in need. Her vision is to provide a health link between Australia and Nepal by providing free surgical & dental procedures to those who have no means to access health care.


“I’m totally in love with Nepal and passionate about helping the people there,” she said.

Loopy told myGC she was absolutely thrilled to win the award for July, after being nominated three times.

“I was totally amazed and overwhelmed to win the award. It’s incredible,” she said.
