I registered as a Paramedic in May 2011. Prior to this I worked as an EMT for four years. I completed nine years working for the East of England Ambulance Service, working on both front line ambulances and rapid response vehicles.
I moved to Two Rivers Medical Centre in March 2016 as a paramedic practitioner. Currently undertaking a BSc in Emergency Care Practitioner studies. I continue to broaden my knowledge and assessment with the guidance of the clinical team, and apply this learning to my role of assisting the GP with visiting housebound patients, as well as minor illness/injury clinics.

I have been a registered Paramedic since 2015, prior to this I worked as an EMT for 5 years on a frontline Ambulance. I loved the emergency side, but wanted a new challenge and so joined Two Rivers in 2016 where I am one of two Practice Paramedics. I am currently working towards a BSc in Emergency Practitioner Care at Wolverhampton University, which is enabling me to develop my Primary Care skills further.

I joined the East of England Ambulance Service in 2003 working initially as an Emergency Medical Technician for 3 years. In 2006 completed the IHCD Paramedic course and became a registered Paramedic. In 2007 I achieved the certificate of higher education in Emergency Medical Care. In my final years I became a qualified level 6 Mentor working with university students during their Ambulance placements. My passion to teach led me to work on the Training Ambulance based out of Ipswich. I enjoyed nearly 15 years with the Ambulance Service working on both Ambulances and Rapid Response Cars. Although I enjoyed emergency medicine I wanted to get to know my patients and enhance my general knowledge of medicine, hence the reason for moving into Primary Care.
