Welcome to my corner of the internet where I can share my thoughts, feelings, projects and ambitions - thanks for stopping by!

On my site you’ll find a whole heap of information and resources including lots of information and resources on my work with cleft lip and palate, including video seminars, presentations and publications.

You’ll also find my radio work, including my back catalogue of podcasts, some of my Speech Language Therapy resources. You’ll also find my news and views on places that I have travelled and my interpretations of current events.

About Me

After growing up in East Sussex, United Kingdom, I live in Christchurch, New Zealand and I now consider New Zealand to be home. I returned in early 2020 from an amazing two years living and working in the United Kingdom based in the vibrant city of London.

I have both a personal and academic interest in cleft lip and palate and have travelled the world to learn about cleft, as well as share my knowledge on cleft to others. I am a former CEO of Cleft New Zealand, and recently completed a 3 and a half year stint as the Adult Services Manager at the Cleft Lip and Palate Association in the UK.

I also freelance as a public speaker and MC, and thoroughly enjoy giving talks that encourage people to make the most of life’s opportunities. If you have an opportunity that you would like me to speak at, do get in touch – I’m always looking for a worthy cause to lend myself to.

Finally, I also have my IT business, IntegrITy, and know a thing or two about technology and am happy to help out where I can.

In New Zealand, I work part time as a Speech Language Therapist, and am working on a research project looking at the psychological impact of speech differences in New Zealand adults who were born with a cleft.

I was the Radio Presenter and Producer of the Wireless Watchdog and Christchurch Now breakfast programmes on Plains FM 96.9. I also worked for Plains FM 96.9 during 2020 covering the COVID-19 pandemic with Be Kind, Be Safe, Unite Against COVID-19.

Except where otherwise stated, all views are my own.
