I first started working for WHH in 2012 as a band 5 Dietitian straight out of university. At the time there was a lot of competition for Band 5 Dietetic roles and there was around 50 people at the interviews. I thought I had no chance! It was like the X-factor, starting with group interviews and progressing through rounds to a final face to face interview with a “panel” of Dietitians. Much to my surprise and joy I was offered the job that day. I had actually already started the early stages of accepting a job for another trust much closer to my home-town but something really drew me to the job at WHH and it was a decision that has shaped both my career path and personal life today.

I always knew that I wanted to become a paediatric Dietitian and after establishing and embedding my skills as a general band 5 dietitian on the adult wards, an exciting opportunity came up within the paediatric team. I was successful getting the job and so excited to start focussing on this new specialism.

In 2013 I completed a Masters module in Paediatrics and soon afterwards was successful securing a full time specialist paediatric Diabetes Dietitian role. It was quickly becoming the area of Dietetics that I loved. One aspect I particularly enjoy is the continuity of seeing patients from diagnosis until they transition to the young person’s Diabetes team at around 17 years old. In 2015 I completed a masters module in Paediatric Diabetes at York University, alongside my full time role.

In 2018 a role within the trust as a band 7 specialist clinical lead Dietitian came up and I got the job. I have thoroughly enjoyed the new challenges of managing a team alongside my clinical duties. We are a small team with big ideas and despite the pandemic and me being away for a year on maternity leave, we have made big, positive changes working towards paperless notes and quality improvement projects. I have returned to the role part time, with a whole new perspective, and lots of exciting ideas for the service moving forwards. It is great to be part of a dynamic, hard working team who are embracing all of the changes and working hard to improve the service for our patients.
