Born in Essex but grew up in Falmouth attending both King Charles and Falmouth School, I left to study Speech Therapy at Plymouth University and returned to work in Helston as a Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist for a year. However, I never stopped chasing my dream of becoming a doctor and in 2005 left to study medicine at Bart's and the Royal London University, I then stayed and worked in London for 10 years covering specialties such as General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Psychiatry, Palliative Care and Care of the Elderly, and then training as a GP.
I came back to Cornwall in 2015 on a trial basis, planning to return to London but never left!
My speech therapy experience has led to a specialist interest in Ear Nose and Throat, alongside being in charge of organising and teaching the Peninsula Medical students we have at Westover.
In my spare time I enjoy the gym, cycling, dancing, embracing life by the sea and supporting Arsenal!.
