I trained as a dental hygienist whilst I was serving in the Army, qualifying in 2009. I currently work between Doncaster and Leeds for 3 lovely practices, as well as being a key opinion leader for brands such as Oral B, for which I am hugely passionate. I am also an ambassador for Boutique and now I can say I am beyond proud to be an ambassador for the BSDHT. My passion for the profession and the dental industry as a whole can be seen in the numerous places in which I have been published- including BDJ In Practice, The Probe, Smile magazine, DH Contact, Young Dentist magazine, BDJ Team and Dental Nurse magazine, among other dental publications. I have also written for other publications such as Aesthetics Medicine magazine about medical aesthetics, in which I have been qualified for 5 years and carry out alongside my dental hygiene career while mentoring other clinicians in this field too. In my spare time I do like to run, cycle and keep fit, but decided after completing a Half Ironman Triathlon last year that I simply don't have the time to commit to training to compete in long distance anymore, so I just train for fun now. My aim is to show hygienists and therapists that being involved in your professional society is the only way to develop our profession and come together as one voice to be able to propel it forward.
