I am very excited to be part of Runwood Homes. I started temporary cover on 5 March 2018 for six months covering maternity leave.

My background is Mental Health Nursing, Older Adults, and I have specialised in dementia since 2000. I have studied extensively and gained an MSc in Dementia Studies from Stirling University in 2009.

Having carried out a variety of roles within the NHS including Dementia Research Nurse with DeNDRoN and Dementia Nurse Specialist in a variety of settings I then left the NHS in 2013 to work in the Care Home sector to be better able to make a difference to the lives of people living with dementia.

I moved to Suffolk in 2003 with my daughter who is now 23. I enjoy walking while listening to audio books and enjoying the countryside/ seaside. I am fortunate to live right next to the Stour Valley Walk.
