Background Information 
Professional profile:

After qualification from Imperial College London, I undertook my obstetric and gynaecological training in hospitals in Kent and London.  I attained membership of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2009, and was awarded the Prize Medal for my overall performance.  Following completion of my general training, I undertook a subspecialty fellowship in urogynaecology at St. George’s Hospital, London.  This lead to formal subspecialty accreditation in urogynaecology from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.  I have also been awarded a doctorate degree based on my research into urinary incontinence.

I am able to offer a wide range of treatment options for both urogynaecology problems and pelvic floor dysfunction, as well as general gynaecological problems.  My personal philosophy is to practice woman centred care and decision making, based on a thorough assessment of the underlying problem and on each individual woman’s wishes and personal treatment goals.  

Personal profile:

I was born and brought up in Kent, and live with my husband in the local area.  Outside of work, I have lots of interests to keep me busy, including cooking, reading and swimming.   I love to travel as well and am always looking for new and interesting destinations to visit.
