She then undertook her specialist training in dermatology in the West Midlands, before being appointed as a Consultant Dermatologist at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in 2014.

She has presented widely at a national and international level on topics ranging from skin cancer to paediatric dermatology, laser therapy, and management of chronic skin conditions, and has relevant peer-reviewed publications.

Within the NHS, she undertakes general dermatology clinics for adults with skin problems such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, and rosacea and runs a busy weekly suspected skin cancer clinic.
