Tell us a little about you?
I graduated from Nottingham University in 2015 with a Masters in Paediatric Nursing. From there, I spent three years working in neonatal intensive care. I recently moved to children’s community nursing, as I was inspired during my student years.
I am originally from Ireland, however I’ve now spent eight years in England and fear I may be losing my accent. I am a big foodie, and love discovery of any new exciting foods and restaurants. I also love any type of travelling, whether it be a weekend break or half way around the world!
How do you see the role?
As a Primary Care Nurse, I hope to educate children, parents, and carers to fully understand their condition, and in turn give them the confidence to manage their condition. I also like to advocate for children and families to have access to holistic, research led, and high quality healthcare, with the support from their local GP’s and tertiary services.
What is your hope for the CYPHP programme?
I hope to see the CYPHP mission and statement rolled out across all of London and eventually the UK. I hope to inspire families and young people to take control of their health issues, giving them control of each individual condition. Let’s get the UK talking about their health more!
