Where there is cake, there is hope. And there is always cake.
My current role
I see children and adults with a variety of genetic conditions, mainly in Cambridge and the Great Yarmouth area. My specialist interests include paediatric cancer, colorectal cancer, skeletal dysplasia and disorders of sexual differentiation. I am also the GMSA lead for lynch syndrome.
I initially trained as a nurse and worked as a district nurse in Liverpool. After qualifying as a doctor I trained in paediatrics then clinical genetics at Alder Hey children's hospital.
