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.
