She underwent a period of research in General Surgery and was awarded a Doctorate (MD) at the University of Newcastle prior to undertaking a higher surgical training in Trauma & Orthopaedics.
She completed her training with a post-CCT Hand Fellowship at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital (October 2016-October 2017) and then went on to become a locum hand consultant at the Pulvertaft Hand Unit in Derby (October 2017-January 2018), during which time she was awarded the British Diploma of Hand Surgery (March 2018) by the BSSH and University of Manchester.
