I have been a Dental Nurse for 30 years and qualified in 1998.

I have had a wide experience in General Practice supporting clinician’s chairside.  I ventured into supporting Specialists in a joint Referral and General Practice in 2001 and when the practice expanded into a Specialist Referral Centre, I progressed and became a Treatment Coordinator until 2011 when I was introduced into a new role of Clinical Lead.  I later joined the Portsmouth Dental Academy in 2012 and am currently employed as a Staff Dental Nurse. 

Hobbies include:

  • Being a long time player of badminton since the age of 14
  • Golf
  • Swimming
  • Country Walking
  • Exploring the UK with my 3-year-old Wheaton Terrier dog
  • Foreign Holidays and, of course, Retail Therapy and shoes!
