During that time she finished an intercalated BSc in Cardiovascular Science. She went on to complete her basic surgical training in London.

After this, she completed a Masters of Science in Surgical Science. She then went on to complete higher surgical training in Yorkshire – rotating between St James’s University Hospital in Leeds, the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield and Castle Hill Hospital (part of the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust) in Hull.
