Originally from the Northwest of England, I trained at Guys (UMDS) in London and moved to the South West fifteen years ago. I’ve worked in general practice for most of that time, but did spend a year as an SHO in the Oral Surgery Department in Taunton’s Musgrove Park hospital.
I really enjoy my chosen career, the challenges and the fact that every day is different. The best parts of my job are putting nervous patients at ease and carrying out cosmetic work that enables people to smile again. Shortly after starting work at Trinity House in 2013, I was presented with the opportunity to buy the practice. The sale took a long time to go through but since January 2015 I’ve been enjoying being my own boss.
I love to travel when I get the opportunity, the more out-of-the-way, the better. At home I garden, read, paint scale models and when the weather co-operates, I get my telescope out for a bit of stargazing.
