Tell us a bit about where you are now?
I currently work in Worthing hospital as a Physician Associate (PA) on the general medical, diabetic and endocrine ward; I have been there since November 2019. Before that I was at East Surrey Hospital as a PA in Care of the Elderly for two years. I also work two days a week at BSMS as a lecturer on the Physician Associate Studies programme.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
The best advice I have ever been given is: You can always ask. I can’t remember who said this, but often I find that I try and do too much on my own! I have gained a lot from all parts of my life when I have asked for help!
Who has inspired you most in life?
My mum. She showed me that there’s always an opportunity to do something new. She has done a variety of jobs over the years and always transferred skills and knowledge from these to new ones, no matter how different they were, and subsequently added more. I came to this course after a couple of years of trying other things and I was worried that it was too late to try something new. This has definitely not been the case.
