I have a background in care work and have spent time abroad doing charity work.   I joined the Trust in March 2016 as a Healthcare Assistant on the Orthopaedic Trauma Ward.  I decided I would like a new challenge and a post became available in the Research Department.

I thoroughly enjoy working with the heart and stroke team.  I feel I am gaining knowledge and experience every day.  I spend my free time flying the family hawk, spending time with my family and cooking.
