    During my BSc Biological Sciences with Genetics degree, I specialised in human reproduction, embryology and cancer genetics.

    I completed my MSc Genetic Counselling at the University of Manchester, and worked as a Trainee Genetic Counsellor at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust for 3 years.

    During this time, I was elected as the New Genetic Counsellor Representative for the UK Association of Genetic Nurses and Counsellors (AGNC). I attained my professional registration with the Genetic Counsellor Registration Board (GCRB) in 2018, and moved to Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to pursue my specialist interest in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
