BA, PGMDE, Wales Deanery, Cardiff University, Wales, UK

Following a career in Interpreting & Translation and working with vulnerable groups, I was seconded to the School of Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education (Wales Deanery) to work with Asylum Seeking and Refugee Doctors in 2001. My roles in the Wales Deanery since include managing International Medical Graduates, Specialty Training Recruitment and most recently Professional Support to doctors and dentists in training. I led projects such as the first UK National Recruitment, recruitment of doctors to Wales from abroad and the Remediation and Rehabilitation work-stream for Revalidation of Doctors in Wales.

I am an experienced trainer leading on educational activities to senior faculty in Wales in the area of recognition of issues affecting progression through medical and dental postgraduate training, maximising performance, performance support, mentoring and wellbeing.

My recent Certificate in Occupational Health Law enables me to advise and operate safely in the areas of occupational health, health and safety, disability and employment law. I have trained in Resilience / Trauma Risk Management (TRiM), I am certified in Realise 2 (strength based assessment and development tool), a qualified Mentor and a NLP Practitioner. I am currently working towards LLM in Employment Law to expand my knowledge in this area.

My training and experience enable me to work with individuals to unlock potential through realising their strengths to achieve goals.
