She fell in love with life, and life loved her right back! – These words are what I am all about. From my early years growing up in Bristol (those if you who know me know only too well that I try and slip in my home town whenever I can) I’ve always tried to see the best in everything. This has probably been the origins of why I love working in an environment, that seeks to improve, innovate and makes changes for the better.
Soon to start QI coaching I hope that this will further help me to develop myself to be able to empower others in Tower Hamlets to work together and take steps to make extraordinary changes, be it small or big. To be part of this movement to encourage, and assist the growth of local talent leaves me feeling fortunate and eager to start. I have no doubt that this QI journey will be one that will make positive changes to our healthcare systems here in the borough and possibly beyond.
I have worked in the NHS just shy of 15 years across London in many guises but it’s not until I came to Tower Hamlets that I truly felt at home. The energy, enthusiasm and wholehearted embracing culture that this place has to offer has been inspirational. I have had the opportunity to be part of this NHS system as a provider of services, in primary care, and as a commissioner of services.
When not at work, I love the simple things in life, my friends and family are always at the forefront of my weekend plans whether it’s organising days out, meals in, or just chilling I love to be around them. I have a slight obsession with food, call it being a foodie or having a father who loved to cook and feed me “special” culinary delights almost every day when I was a home. Either way it rubbed off on me so feeding others is what I do, sometimes it works, sometimes, not so much; but in true EQUIP style it’s a matter of putting PDSA into action until it hits the spot!
