Her favourite part about being a dental nurse, so far, is the variety of challenges she is faced with daily, and working with Emma-Kate to improve their patient’s dental health.

In her spare time, you will see her catching up with friends, going to gym, cooking and making delicious food we’ve yet to taste!
