I was recruited into a large clinical trial in 2011 and have been involved in a broad range of Patient and Public Involvement work ever since. My area of interest is Women’s Health where I am an active member of Katie’s Team (an Advisory Group hosted at QMUL). With their support I have been active in most areas of the research lifecycle and also co-authored a paper about involving pregnant women, mothers and members of the public to improve the quality of women’s health research. In 2017 I also became part of the ‘Women and Families Involvement Group’ within the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit. Having a young family and elderly relatives I have used a broad range of health and care services which also informs my perspective and motivates me further to use my business skillset to increase the impact and reach of the INVOLVE Advisory Group’s work. I am also a member of the British Standards Institute (BSI) Knowledge Management Systems Committee and love anything chocolate!
