I was born in Portadown, Northern Ireland and entered the Nursing Profession qualifying as a State Registered Nurse.
After seeing a baby being born, I knew that Midwifery was for me, so travelled to Sheffield and Croydon to train. On qualifying, I practiced Midwifery throughout the country, finally arriving in Cay Maternity, Warneford Hospital Royal Leamington Spa, as a Midwifery Sister.
Eighteen months later saw me travelling to Australia to work, travel and camp throughout this massive continent before returning to Cay Maternity.
I later retired to Cornwall to enjoy the climate and to walk, play golf and Bridge.
