I qualified in 2011 with a BSc (Hons) in Medical Sciences and Management from Imperial College Business School. I graduated in 2015 from The Queen's University of Belfast with a degree in medicine. I also hold a PGCert in Health Economics from The University of Aberdeen. I am currently finalising my dissertation for my MBA at The University of Hull, which I am undertaking.

I have had significant experience in QI and leadership in healthcare since I started my third year of medical school in 2011. I founded 'The Queen's Healthcare Leadership Forum', which has held multiple events on healthcare improvement, leadership and management, across disciplines. It is still in existence over a decade later - led by students, open to everyone involved in health and social care.

I have worked in multiple Trusts and have engaged in various strategic and departmental projects throughout the last six years since I qualified as a doctor.

I have previously been a management and leadership trainee, from which I am about to complete my MBA.

I have been a full-time Emergency Medicine doctor for over two years, and I am the Clinical Governance lead in Scarborough Emergency Department. I have introduced multiple initiatives in this role around improving the QI and governance processes within the Department.

My interests are in implementing quality improvement projects that bring tangible results, health economics, patient safety, and patient flow. Another interest I hold is in the application of 'systems thinking' in improving healthcare delivery - the topic of my MBA dissertation.
