Tell us a little about you?
I qualified as a Children’s Nurse in 2015 from King’s College London, after previously completing a degree in Social Sciences at the University of York. Once I had qualified, I worked in the Evelina London Children’s Hospital in three different wards. I looked after tiny newborn babies to teenagers, some much taller than me!
I then decided to move into School Nursing, where I have worked in Lambeth and Greenwich. During this time I completed the Specialist Community Public Health Nurse qualification.
In my spare time, I love catching up with friends, going to the theatre to see a musical, watching sport, and singing in my local community choir.
How do you see the role?
I see my role as a Primary Care Nurse as a real privilege to help and support the children and their families of Lambeth and Southwark. I hope to be able to empower families to understand the conditions that are impacting their children’s health, to feel confident in managing them, and to know how to seek help when it’s needed.
What is your hope for the CYPHP programme?
I hope for the CYPHP programme to continue to grow and develop, so we are providing a service that is really beneficial for the children and their families, and the wider NHS.
