Patient. Advocate. Patient engagement and insight specialist.

Having lived with the long term chronic condition ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) since 2008, I have become incredibly passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with long term conditions particularly through better information and improved support to self manage their condition.

Through my work I have also seen the incredible benefits of involving patients in every step of innovation in the healthcare sector. I’ve developed a diverse skill set and experience in all aspects of patient engagement, user research and healthcare innovation and have worked with the NHS, research organisations and some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies to help them involve patients and drive change.
