I am passionate about trichology, with an eye for detail, accuracy and research. I set up the Surrey Trichology Clinic after having qualified from the Institute of Trichologists in 2016, where I was awarded the ‘John Mason Award’ for excellence in my studies. I am a member of various professional bodies, which prove my qualifications and professional standards.
I started my career in hairdressing, later moving into teaching at a local further education college, where I was a lecturer, assessor and quality assurer. I still keep my hand in the hairdressing world, as an examiner and lead moderator at City and Guilds.
I was asked to join the teaching team at the Institute of Trichologists after qualifying, taking pride in helping to shape the next generation of Trichologists. I enjoy taking an active role in Trichology, speaking at various conferences about and helping to organise events to share my thirst for knowledge. I was privileged to be awarded the ‘Outstanding Trichologist – Newcomer’ award at the Hair Science Awards in 2018, voted for by my peers.
I am continuing my journey into the specialist world of hair research; currently working on a project to identify the scalp microbiome in different types of alopecia and completing a degree in Biomedical Science, to bring further evidence-based, clinical excellence to the profession, my practice and patients.
