Originally from Ireland I qualified as a nurse at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough in 1994. I then worked in London Hospitals on an acute medical ward and in intensive care. While in London I trained to be a midwife and worked as a staff midwife when I qualified. Following this I have worked as a practice nurse and as a school nurse in Berkshire. I live locally with my husband and two children. In my spare time I enjoy reading, listening to music and walking our dog.
