I began my nursing career working in a variety of settings as a support worker in 1997, I worked in a variety of settings ranging from specialist learning disability units, to acute medical medicine.

I qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 2006, working initially in an acute hospital setting, before moving to Medium Secure Unit working in a service for people with personality disorder. I have since 2007 work in a community setting, supporting people experiencing mental health crisis, assessing and supporting individuals to stay in their own homes, where appropriate to do so.
