If Hazel lived in the present day, what type of job or profession do you think she would have? Where would she fit in today’s society?

Hazel might have been a PA, Physicians Assistant, in a homeopathic practice.

I think Hazel would be a health care worker, possibly a certified midwife or a physician assistant or a nurse. Or perhaps a physician!

Yes, I agree with the above - she could have been a midwife, a doula, nurse, LPN, etc. Given her position at that time, I don’t see her as a doctor, but then who knows?

Interesting question! I agree that she would be some sort of nurse. I would hope like anyone who had served their time, she would have a rightful place in society, but that's difficult for anyone who is released. Maybe it was easier in Tasmania at that time?

I can imagine Hazel being a healer. Her patients would learn about her skills from one another; they would pass on those good words to others in need.

Hazel could be a leader in her community, her fame growing with each person she helps. Even though other medical services would be available, she would still be the one to seek out to receive requests from those who do not rely on doctors and the like.

She is a most interesting and valuable character.

Hazel would be a homeopathic doctor and doula. She would also incorporate modern medicine into her practice. She would have the perfect balance to meet each of her patient's needs.

I think she would be a midwife, OB nurse, holistic health practitioner, or naturopath! Her skills were so incredible to read about and it made me want to have her knowledge :)

I think if Hazel had lived in the present day I believe she would have worked in a field caring for people. She might have been a midwife or worked as someone in the holistic healing field. Her interest and knowledge of natural remedies and plants would have drawn her to a careers related to mental and physical wellness.

She would thrive in the medical field. She was a midwife and knew herbs. Maybe she would be a Herbalist, Pharmacist, Holistic Health, Physician (or Assistant), Nurse, Pediatrician, or Dietician.
