starting my career in NHS clinical practice as a nurse working with people
facing life threatening illnesses; I decided to move into Training &
Education in 1993 to inspire, motivate and support healthcare workers
in their day to day work.
I spent several years working at London Lighthouse; Residential Centre
for people affected by HIV / AIDS, spent some time travelling and returned
to my roots in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Whilst working at the Newcastle Marie Curie Centre as their Staff Development
Officer I provided Learning & Development strategies for all of the
staff & volunteers including coaching, mentoring and training. Although
I loved my work with Marie Curie; organisational restructure, and being
faced with redundancy provided me with the challenge and opportunity to
develop my own Freelance Business. This was something that I had been
thinking about for a while and after being Headhunted by a company who
‘Wanted to buy my enthusiasm’
I felt inspired to take the plunge into self employment.
My clients include:
Stannah Stairlifts, Traidcraft, St. Oswald’s Hospice
North Tyneside Education Authority, NAPP Pharmaceuticals
St. Christopher’s Hospice, London, CHASE Children’s Hospice
RVI & Freeman Healthcare Trust, Macmillan Nurses
Post Graduate Deanery of Medicine, Newcastle
Marie Curie Cancer Care
I love my work & understand all about ‘juggling the many balls’
of life as I am a mother to a tremendous toddler, wife, carer, Company
Director, self employed business woman & part time domestic goddess
( with a good sense of humour!!)
My energy, creativity & enthusiasm ensure that my glass is always
‘half full’ and I look forward to working with you!
