Having studied Adult nursing, throughout my training I had a strong interest in neurology, particularly epilepsy. I applied for a nursing position at the Epilepsy Centre as a relatively newly qualified nurse and have never looked back since. Originally recruited as a part-time nurse, I have progressed throughout my time working at the centre to become a Senior Nurse, and more recently have moved into the role of Interim Nurse Manager. In my current role I oversee the inpatient services and nursing team within the Scottish Epilepsy Centre.
Working at the centre has provided me with lots of opportunities for further development, including further study towards a graduate certificate in epilepsy care, alongside numerous training and learning opportunities which support me in my role.
