I grew up in Teesside, having being born in North Tees Hospital, and attending Conyers School in Yarm. I did my Undergraduate Medical degree at the University of Sheffield and moved back to the Teesside area for my Foundation doctor years at North Tees.
I began training as a GP in 2015, and in 2016 was lucky enough to be given a post which enabled me to continue training as a GP, whilst teaching Medical Students and performing Research at Newcastle University.
I was brought up by my wonderful Mum and Dad with my two siblings. My Mum was a Midwife and then a Health Visitor in the Stockton area, before passing away in 2010. Through her I developed my passion for Primary Care in the community, and interest in the support of families and babies both before and after delivery.
I live with my incredibly tolerant Husband, our three terriers and our tortoise. When not working I enjoy walking the dogs, gardening and knitting (particularly dog jumpers)!
