I joined the Physician Associate Masters course as a Teaching fellow in November 2021. I completed my undergraduate degree in Health and Human Sciences in 2016, before gaining my PgDiploma in Physician Associate Studies in 2018, both from the University of Sheffield. I have worked as a qualified Physician Associate in the local region since qualifying, in both acute and emergency medicine.

I have previously represented PAs across South Yorkshire as a Physician Associate Ambassador for Health Education England before redirecting to pursue a career in medical education. I now split my working responsibilities between my role as a Teaching fellow and my clinical duties as a practising PA.
