Dr Weerasinghe has worked primarily in Queensland during her career of more than 30 years as well as completing shorter stints in Sri Lanka and Victoria.  She has a special interest in mental health and counselling, having undertaken six years of psychiatric training in Brisbane, and has worked in the area of skin cancer for 20 years. The combination of these two interests has meant that Dr Weerasinghe has extensive experience in counselling skin cancer patients as part of their treatment journey.

Dr Weerasinghe says the care of her patients is her number one priority and she will engage with other colleagues and medical specialists to ensure optimal medical treatment for them.

Dr Weerasinghe enjoys camping and surfing with her partner and their two teenage daughters. They also enjoy the creative arts. Dr Weerasinghe loves reading, cooking, and dogs. In her spare time, she is learning to garden so that she can grow her own herbs and vegetables.
