I obtained my BA (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Reading (UK) in 1995, and then continued to complete a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology in 1998 from the University of East Anglia (Norfolk). I then went on to obtain a Diplomma in Neuropsychology at the Institute of Psychiatry in London (UK) in 2000. Following this I worked full time in Oxford (UK) for 5 years working as a Psychologist at the Radcliffe Infirmary for adult and children with aquired and degenerative brain disorders, whilst also working at the Warnford Hospital with adolescents on an Inpatient psychiatric unit and outpatients who presented to Psychology. I moved to Canada in 2003, and began working at Sickkids Hospital a few months later. I obtained Full Practioner status with the College of Psychologists of Ontario in June 2006. During my time at Sickkids I have worked as a Psychologist with a number of programs including; Epilepsy, Genetics, Heamatology/Oncology and Cystic Fibrosis. However, I have worked in the Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Centre for over 10 years, providing neuropsychological assessment and intervention to children within our multi organ / intestinal failure program.
