I spent my childhood in Northamptonshire, and qualified from Birmingham medical school in 1981. I moved to Torbay in 1982, undertaking various hospital jobs in Exeter and Torquay, and joined the Dewerstone Practice in 1987.  I have had a long involvement and interest in medical politics, and was a member of Devon Local Medical Committee and also on the board of the South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group until April 2016. I have two grown-up children, and enjoy walking and snow-boarding.

I trained at the University of Manchester, and then worked in the North West for a year after qualifying, before moving down and settling in Devon in 1998.  I am married with two young children, and live locally.  I joined the Chilcote Surgery in January 2004, where I work part-time, three days a week, as a GP partner.  I enjoy all aspects of family medicine, but have particular interests in palliative care, sexual health, and women’s and child health.  I work alongside the Health Visitors at the baby and young families’ clinic each week.  In my spare time I love running around after my two young children, mountain biking and canoeing.

I grew up in Newton Abbot and went to school and college in Torquay. I completed my medical degree at Kings College, London in 2006 and then moved back to Devon to start working as a Doctor. Since qualifying as a GP I developed interests in women’s health, particularly family planning. I'm married with three young daughters. My spare time is therefore limited, but if I do get the chance I like to go out for a bike ride or a run.
