After spending 12 months at the Institute of Religious Formation in St Louis (Missouri, USA), Regina's first position in palliative care was with the pastoral care team at Sacred Heart Hospice, Darlinghurst (New South Wales, Australia).

In 1998, this service became one of four partners in Eastern Palliative Care, the largest single provider of community-based palliative care in Victoria.
