My dental career started in 1992 when I qualified as a dental nurse in New Zealand. It was a job that I loved but I wanted to travel and see the world so I began travelling in 1995 and arrived in the UK and never really left. I completed my Hygiene and Therapy training at Leeds University, qualifying in 2007 with distinction and have worked for a number of practices in North Yorkshire. I started working at The Smile Spa in January 2012 and enjoy being part of lovely, friendly team who are committed to excellent patient care. I particularly enjoy treating anxious patients, building their confidence and making a difference to their oral and overall wellbeing. Away from work I love walking and travelling. I climbed Kilimanjaro last year for dental charity Bridge2aid. I also enjoy nights out with friends and family.
