I am a children’s trained nurse who has gone on to train as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse. I have worked within School Health for 19 years continuing to develop throughout that time, gathering qualifications as I went. I am now the Clinical Manager and drive the service forward. I love that I started as a Band 5 nurse and am now leading.

I have six children and two foster children. I am incredibly proud of everyone of them! We love being outdoors either on the beach or walking across the beautiful local countryside.


  • Commencing my nurse training 28 years ago
  • Leading an ‘Outstanding’ service when rated via our We Care visit – internal CQC
  • Making a difference to the lives of children and young people

What attracted you to the MBA programme at Kent Business School and why?

I was excited by the idea of learning and developing with people from outside the NHS and being able to see how different areas of business work. I want to challenge myself to be the best that I can be.
