My Nursing career started many years ago as a dental nurse where I worked in private practice in the city for several years before stopping work to have my family.
I started my nurse training in 1995 and have been a paediatric nurse since 1999. I began working on a general sick children's ward, where I stayed for around 14 years; I then enjoyed working in paediatric day surgery for five years before moving to West Sussex and I now work in paediatric Outpatients. I live on a small holding, and in my spare time, I love gardening and looking after our goats, chickens, ducks and geese.
Before joining the team, I gained a degree in Business Management, and have worked in hospital administration for many years, alongside raising my two small children.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends. Being a mum myself I completely understand how important it is to find the right care for your children.
My life has been dedicated to helping children and their families. Getting the right care for children is vital, and I recognise this as a mother and now a proud grandmother to four young ‘grandbabies.’
I am passionate about working for paediatric diagnostics, and my role enables me to utilise my current skills working as a social worker.
I enjoy spending time with friends and family.
I have worked in healthcare since leaving sixth form in multiple different roles around the hospital. I love working in healthcare as it gives me an enormous sense of pride when I help a patient receive the treatment they desire. Having worked on reception, medical records and imaging bookings, I know the importance of understanding patients needs and being able to cater as best as possible.
I am currently training to be a pilot. And in my spare time I play the guitar, as well as being a keen golfer.
I am currently in sixth form studying Business and IT. I have an interest in customer service and I will strive to ensure that children and families have a positive experience during their journey at Paediatric Diagnostics. I seek to provide a friendly and welcoming environment. Outside of work I enjoy rollerblading, ice skating and football.
