Dr Airey graduated from the University of Tasmania in 2004. She completed advanced training in neurology at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the Princess Alexandra Hospital, undertaking a movement disorder fellowship with Dr Richard Boyle.
Dr Airey has worked as a general neurologist at the Princess Alexandra Hospital since 2013, as well as in private practice. She established an MS Clinic and a Botulinum toxin Headache Clinic at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. She has an interest in neurophysiology (nerve conductions studies and EMG) and has been involved in research in chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). An emerging interest is in women’s neurology, including management of neurological issues during pregnancy.
She is experienced in the management of chronic migraine. She is interested in improving outcomes for headache patients using a multidisciplinary approach in addition to drug therapies such as Botulinum toxin and CGRP monoclonal antibodies.
In addition to chronic migraine, Dr Airey is qualified to inject Botulinum toxin for cervical dystonia, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, axillary hyperhidrosis and spasticity.
Dr Airey and colleagues Dr Joanne Bullock-Saxton (advanced physiotherapist), Dr Jamie Nuttall (general practitioner) and Peter Jones (Nurse Practitioner) also offer a multidisciplinary headache program which is designed to holistically assess and manage complex headache.
