I qualified as a registered nurse in 1984 and worked in the accident and emergency department in my local general hospital before moving to work in Saudi Arabia at a military air base. I moved back to the UK in 1986 where I continued to work in a variety of settings within the NHS before moving into the private sector in 1993.
My interest in brain injury began in 1997 when I started managing a brain injury rehabilitation centre, where I worked until 2004.
Since joining Head First in 2004 I have been able to continue to develop my knowledge and skills while supporting a wide range of clients with severe physical difficulties and those with cognitive, emotional and behavioural issues. I am involved in helping my clients and their families to cope with the issues they face following brain injury, which includes the management of complex support packages and the co-ordination of reviewing my clients’ rehabilitation with the support of a multi-disciplinary team, while supporting my clients to reach their potentail and fulfil their goals.
