I worked as a senior buyer at Sweatshop (an independent running retailer) for 20 years and am currently an independent retail consultant.  As a Member of the Research Group in Breast Health I bring commercial experience to the group with a unique understanding of sales, merchandising and consumer insight into the sports bra market.  I have worked closely with Professor Joanna Scurr to educate retail staff on breast health and bra fit knowledge.  I became a member of the Research in Breast Health Group in 2012 and have been working on an education initiative since then.  


I am working on an educational breast health initiative for school girls.  I believe all schools should be able to deliver a module on breast health to all adolescent school girls.  The goal is to empower girls to make the right choices about their breast health.
