My interest in cleft palate began when shadowing the cleft multidisciplinary team clinic at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. I especially like how the MDT works together to provide client centred care. As a psychology graduate, I also am drawn to the psychological and social aspects of cleft care. 
I was initially introduced to CLEFT by Shonnelly, who co-leads the trainees, and after looking into the charity I am looking forward to raising the profile of the great work that CLEFT does, and collaborating with a range of professionals.
