Trial Monitor

After doing a BSc in Biology at Queen Mary College, University of London I briefly worked at the Blood Transfusion Centre as a scientific officer before deciding to pursue a career in nursing. I studied at Nottingham University.  My first job as a nurse was on the Bone Marrow Transplant and Haematology Unit at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Despite only intending to go for a year I spent the next 16 years living and working in Athens, Georgia in the USA.  I worked in a local hospital on the Orthopaedics/Neurology floor then at the University of Georgia Health Centre as a Travel Advice Nurse.

I returned to the UK in 2011 and became a research nurse in oncology at the Churchill Hospital specialising in breast cancer and melanoma trials. After five years I moved into primary care working as a peripatetic research nurse delivering studies in GP surgeries across the Thames Valley.  For the last two years I have concentrated solely on the STARR COPD study.
