Nurse

Back to Team

I started my career in nursing because I love working with people. I decided to specialise in renal medicine and worked in both dialysis and transplantation, supporting patients and their families through life changing, long term illness. I found it very rewarding to care for people throughout their lives.

During this time, I spent three months in Karachi, Pakistan working in a leprosy hospital. This was an opportunity to gain an understanding of a different way of life in a very different culture.

I first met Dr Hill as one of her clients, and sometime later began working as part of the Hampton Clinic team, supporting with CoolSculpting as well as delivering Hydrafacials, make up consultations and manicures.

I hold a certificate in Counselling and worked in schools for eight years, supporting students coping with loss.

I have three children, two at University and one still at home and in my spare time I enjoy exercise classes. I have a passion for renovating properties and have really enjoyed working on my own houses as we have moved over the years.
