Simone has a passion for science and that is why she endeavoured to utilise her microbiology following qualification as a dental hygienist.
Simone had the privilege of working as a research dental hygienist, which enhanced her knowledge of best practice and good clinical governance, and enabled her to utilise both microbiology and dental skills.

She is currently the chairperson for BSDHT Thames Valley Regional Group and a member of the publications committee.
Simone is eager to enhance and develop her scientific skills that will stretch her analytical abilities. She has acquired leadership skills and strategic planning.

Another passion Simone has apart from dentistry is volunteering. She has been on many dental outreach missions and has coordinated and lead various teams to Zimbabwe.
