In 1998 she got the opportunity to specialize in the treatment of patients diagnosed with a tumour of the brain or spinal cord.

Her role includes providing patient information and support, being involved in technical radiotherapy treatment planning and delivery and research and development including active involvement in national clinical trials.  

She also provides education and support for under-graduates, radiographers, medical trainees, other health care professionals and patient groups.
