I qualified from Coventry University and gained good background experience within the Birmingham Community and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. I further developed my experience by working at Special Schools in Birmingham including Birmingham Children's Hospital, which led to a special interest in Paediatrics and a realisation that I wanted to specialise in the treatment of children.
I have been working in the community in a variety of settings from seeing children on the Special Care Baby Unit to children leaving special schools at 19.My main interests include developmental problems in children, cerebral palsy and children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. I also have an interest in the rehabilitation of children with sporting injuries.
I enjoy all sports and love being in the outdoors. I play hockey for Solihull Blossomfield Ladies and am starting to take an interest in triathlons. When I get the opportunity, I love going hiking in the mountains especially to the Lake District and Snowdonia.
