I will be at Chet Valley Medical Practice for the final year of my GP training from August 2015. Prior to moving to Norwich, I worked in Eastbourne, London, Australia and Kenya. However, as my Norfolk-born husband says, 'all roads lead to Norfolk'. We happily settled here two years ago.
In my spare time I like to get outdoors and if feeling brave wild swim, otherwise I enjoy the cinema, art/craft projects and gardening (badly).

I started at the Practice in August 2016 for my final year of GP training. I am originally from Norfolk, studied at Wymondham College before graduating from Nottingham University. Since graduating I worked for one year in Chesterfield, then the weather and friends in Norfolk drew me back and I have been here ever since!
Outside work I have a dog which I love to get out and run with and occasionally can be seen out cycling or swimming in open water with my partner who is a professional athlete. Also, on sunny weekends I enjoy joining my friends and water-skiing which I have done since a child.

I have an interest in emergency medicine and medical education and hope to pursue this alongside General Practice.

I undertook a degree in applied genetics followed by a PGCE in secondary science and a PhD at the John Innes Centre in Norwich. In my spare time I can usually be found doing something with my hands like gardening, three dimensional puzzle solving or messing around with DIY.
