I started training in 2005 as a registered adult nurse with the University of Surrey and qualified DipHE in 2008. Having a special interest in surgical nursing I have been at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead since qualification and worked first on Canadian Wing and then the Step Down Unit looking after patients undergoing major reconstructive surgery, such as breast reconstruction (now called Enhanced Recovery Area). I gained my Macmillan Breast Reconstruction Clinical Nurse Specialist post in 2011 and completed my specialist degree (BSc) in Acute Clinical Practice (Cancer Pathway) in 2015 at the University of Brighton. I have also completed the Principles of Breast Cancer Care Module (at Masters level 7) at the Royal Marsden School and I regularly attend the London & Brighton Breast Meetings. I have previously taught on the post graduate degree module on the Burns & Plastics course on Breast Reconstruction. I have been trained as a micropigmentation practitioner since 2010 and run both NHS and private clinics. I am a trustee and treasurer for the breast reconstruction charity Restore. I help to run the show & tell information events run by Restore every other month at QVH. I am proud to support ladies at a very emotional and difficult time and proud to be part of such an amazing team of health professionals who strive for best practice and ultimately want a happy patient at the end of their journey.
