I joined the team in 2020 and am the lead psychologist for cleft, craniofacial and facial palsy services at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. I have worked at the interface of physical health and emotional well-being for the past 18 years including within surgical multidisciplinary teams. I have a background in research and hope to bring this experience to my role within Cleft. I am interested to make more links within cleft and hear about new project ideas, particularly those that will improve the lived experience of those born with a cleft and their families.
