My Journey in Medicine
While training to become a pediatrician, I gained extensive experience in neonatal medicine (newborn care) and general pediatrics. I’ve been working in pediatrics in London for the last decade. Treating young children and watching them grow is such a rewarding part of my job. The opportunity to build long-term relationships with my patients and their families and support parents with health knowledge is a true privilege.
Besides caring for my patients, education is a big passion of mine. I am qualified in advanced pediatric life support and neonatal life support (NLS) and recently became an instructor for the NLS course. I teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and enjoy making an impact on pediatricians of the future.
It’s very exciting to join Flo as a medical advisor. I look forward to using my expertise to help Flo educate parents about caring for newborns and young children so they can feel confident and supported in their roles as caregivers.
