I was bought up in Cambridgeshire. When I left college, I found myself a job as a dental nurse. I started as a trainee and I loved it! After a couple of years I became a qualified dental nurse. I felt that I could go further and the next step was to become a dental hygienist!
With the support of the dentist that I worked with, I was accepted into Guys dental school! After I qualified I stayed in London. I enjoyed the life there and loved the hustle and bustle and the many things that London has to offer. I worked hard and bought my own house, just outside London. At this time I was working in Holland Park and Mill Hill, where I gained a lot of experience, I even went on courses in the States. I learnt a lot in these practices, things I still use and practice today.
Then, my life turned up- side- down! I met Steve. Steve was a friend and work college of my new neighbour. Steve was offered a job in Dubai and asked me to go with him. How was I going to turn down living in Dubai?? After knowing him for a short time, I gave up my jobs, rented out my home and left my car on the driveway (just in case it didn’t work out), I am glad to say it did!
After taking another exam, enabling me to work in Dubai, I got myself a great job working in the dental clinic for Emirates airlines. I treated all the pilots and crew and their families. Because of Emirates, I had a fantastic life in Dubai and I was able to travel well. I have travelled throughout the Middle East and Far East. My favourite places that I have visited are Hong Kong, (where we got engaged) and Petra in Jordan.
We got married on the beach in Dubai, it was amazing. We eventually had 2 children. It was wonderful bringing them up in Dubai. But when they were 6 and 8, we decided after 14 years of living in Dubai, it was time to come home.
I had never been to Stratford upon Avon before, but we decided that this was the perfect place for us all to live. We bought a very old cottage in the countryside. A million miles away from the touristy city of Dubai! We got a dog and I love walking him around the scenic fields. I even love the weather here, especially the rain, which there was not much of in Dubai.
I was very lucky to find a job at Moreton Dental, in Moreton in Marsh. I have been working with Caroline for almost a year. I am thoroughly enjoying helping her build her practice and love being part of her team!
I have been qualified now for 20 years and I still love my job, the challenges, and the people I meet.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
