Any details you wish to share about how being female has impacted upon your career (positively or negatively)
Being female has never been a barrier to my career, and indeed been an enabler in my opinion but having a good mentor and support system is essential. As a clinical academic, a wife and mother of young children, I strongly believe that it is important to be happy and maintain a healthy balance in work and life in order to achieve the most of one’s potential.
