I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2004 with BSc Honours in Psychology and Speech Pathology. I worked in the NHS until 2008 and then moved to Dunedin, New Zealand, to continue my career as a speech and language therapist. I was senior therapist for the Neurology and Neuro-surgical teams across critical care, acute and rehabilitation settings.
In 2010 I moved back to the UK and worked as a specialist speech therapist within the acute setting in London. In 2012 I moved into the private sector as a specialist acute and rehabilitation therapist at the Wellington Hospital.
With my advanced Neurological background in adults, I took on a new role within Paediatric Neurology. I moved back to Glasgow in 2014 and started working as a Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist at the Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments.
I have also undergone an Enhanced Disclosure Scotland Check and hold an up to date First Aid Certificate.
