I qualified as a nurse from Bicton College of Agriculture in January 1999. I then spent 8 years working full time as a nurse in Dorset before having my first child. I relocated back to Honiton in 2008, where myself and my husband are originally from, before having our second baby. I started working as a nurse and insurance administrator part time with the Vale when we opened the Honiton branch in 2011.

In 2022 after 23 years of nursing, I became Honiton Practice Manager and now work full time overseeing the daily running of the Honiton branch.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, shipping my boys too and from their football matches, walking my sprocker, reading and watching films.
