I completed the MSc in Audiological Science at The University of Manchester in 2009 and completed my Certificate of Audiological Competence (CAC) training at Manchester Royal Infirmary in 2011. In 2012 I decided to pursue my passion in Cochlear Implants and gained employment as Pre-registrant Clinical Scientist at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, North Wales. In 2014 I became registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Clinical Scientist and have continued my career within Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCU) ever since.
I am fortunate that I have worked in all aspects of Audiology prior to specialising in Cochlear Implants and Diagnostic Audiovestibular and after 12 years I still greatly enjoy my role; relishing in the challenges that I face daily. I am a line manager, Scientist Training Programme (STP) supervisor and Vestibular Higher Training Scheme (HTS) supervisor. I am Audiology IT lead at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and team based working lead in vestibular assessment across Audiology BCU.
Recently I have experience working upon the British Society Audiology (BSA) Audacity editorial team and the British Cochlear Implant Group (BCIG) Conference organising committee 2021 and 2022. I am lucky to be in a position that I have experience working both within the NHS in England and also Wales and so have a perspective of the similarities and differences.
Outside of work I have young children, together we like to spend our time exploring the outdoors with our dog and as much as possible absorbing the culture of others when visiting various countries.
