Angela Keats (previously Relf) grew up in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia (120kms west of Brisbane).  After completing her Bachelor of Applied Science (Med Rad Tech) in 1993 at QUT in Brisbane she  returned to Toowoomba to work with Queensland Xray Services.  Over the next 4 years, as well as learning general xray and CT, she completed her Diploma in Medical Ultrasound at QUT doing a range of ultrasounds including vascular, musculoskeletal and small parts. 

After a short holiday through Europe on a busy Contiki tour, she realised it was time to see more of the world.  She began her travels in 1998 and drove across the Nullabor to work in Perth, Western Australia for 18 months.  In 1999, Angela obtained her ancestry visa and went to the UK to do locum work.  During the next 3 years she worked as a sonographer (and occasionally radiographer) in London, Guernsey, York, Worthing and the Shetland Islands with plenty of travelling in between.  She loved the mobile lifestyle and enjoyed the challenge of a new job, a new place and meeting new friends every few months.

Angela was due to return home to Australia in 2001 after a friend's wedding in Brugge, Belgium.  At the wedding she met the best man, Murray and returned to London with him.  During the next 12 months Angela worked at Barts and the Royal London Hospital followed by  four months at the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

Murray, a New Zealander born in Christchurch, had been living in London for nine years. He is a telecommunications engineer by trade and in London had the opportunity to expand his career into IT and project management with HSBC and several other institutions.

Angela and Murray enjoyed the busy social scene of London and the easy access to worldwide destinations through cheap flights and fantastic holiday deals.  Leaving the UK in early 2003 to return home to Australia they travelled (mostly by train) through Europe, Russia and Mongolia.  They married in August 2003 in Toowoomba with many European, New Zealand and Australian friends at their wedding. 

Throughout their travels Murray and Angela have each travelled to over 50 different countries throughout the world and look forward to more adventures with each other for many years to come.  They have settled in Toowoomba to set up Sonographers Medical Australia and offer other Australians the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and make their overseas experience a reality.
