I qualified as a pharmacist in 1994 after completing my pharmacy degree at Nottingham University. I worked for Boots as a relief pharmacist for 2 years and then moved to Safeway as Pharmacy Manager in Burton on Trent. Whilst in this role I undertook some sessional work proving medicines management support to two local practices. I then moved into a head office role focused on acquisitions and pharmacy relocations and subsequently took a role at LloydsPharmacy as NHS Contracts Manager for 9 years. I then decided to gain some experience working for an independent pharmacy company again focused on pharmacy contracting but adding professional service development and implementation and operations to my responsibilities. I now work as Pharmacy Affairs Manager for Lloyds Pharmacy/McKesson UK and represent CCA.
I live near Nuneaton with my partner and daughter and our Lhasa Poo, Chester. We enjoy walks in the countryside near our home and attempting to grow our own produce on our allotment! I also enjoy travelling and home baking.
