I qualified as a pharmacist in 1988 and have worked for independent community pharmacies, as a hospital pharmacist and as a practice pharmacist before becoming Prescribing Adviser for Cannock Chase Primary Care Group. I subsequently became Director of Primary Care and Service Development for Cannock Chase Primary Care Trust where I was responsible for GP, Dental and Pharmacy contracts. Since 2009 I have been Pharmacy Manager at Midcounties Co-op Pharmacy (Lichpharm) within Greenhill Health Centre, Lichfield. I joined the LPC as AIMp representative in August 2014.
As well as a pharmacy degree I also have an MSc in Equine Science. My interests include horses, gardening, food, travel and spending time with my nieces and nephew.
