"I started life working in Graphic Design; therefore Nursing is my second career. I was inspired to become a nurse after watching the nurses care for a member of my close family and I have never regretted a moment - although I can’t deny that sometimes it has been hard!
From the early days working in cardiology, touching people’s lives in critical situations, through to acquiring my MSc in Advanced Nursing Practice and becoming Head of Nurse Education in a large acute trust, where I felt I influenced the provision of excellent nursing care from one step back - I have always felt that my work has been rewarding and fulfilling.
In my current role as Designated Clinical Officer for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) means that I am working in an unprecedented role, influencing and making change at strategic and operational level with the aim of making life better for people aged 0-25 with SEND. As I am working with multi-agency professionals, parents/ carers and the children and young people themselves… my work is exciting, meaningful and extremely rewarding."
