I am annotated as a podiatric surgeon on the regulatory body website which provides governance and assurance of meeting the 19 standards of podiatrists practicing podiatric surgery.

I am also a registered tutor of the Royal College of Podiatry, and the first female Dean of the Faculty of Podiatric Surgery (2017-2022).
