Biography

I was born in London but moved to Cornwall in 1992 after training and working as a nurse for most of my career. I loved Cornwall from the moment I set foot here and still love living near Falmouth. I had a very serious car accident in 1998 when I was working at Treliske and this stopped me working as a hands-on nurse although I continued as a Nurse Adviser for NHS Direct and the GP Out-of-Hours service in Truro. I got involved with community radio through volunteering for MIND and heard that a new show discussing mental health issues was to be aired (A Space to Speak Your Mind).

Listeners say

It's done a lot: broadcast live performances of a local poetry group I belong to (Falmouth Poetry Group), broadcast radio dramas created by my students, interviewed local politicians (including me) on subjects of local interest and thus contributed to engagement in local democracy.

Entertainment, thought-provoking, love to listen to such a wide group of people from our community

I've produced some content for it (Source) during the lockdown, and I train students to make radio and help them get involved in Source FM, one of my PhD researchers uses it for his work too. It's a really important resource that brings people together and helps us get more people able to make audio.
