A Registered Children’s Nurse from the UK with a passion for helping nurses live more fulfilled lives and nurture their mental health. After suffering from countless bouts of burnout myself I’ve almost quit nursing on more than occasion.

I’ve since come full circle. I’ve been able to transform my life in a way in which both my career and personal life can flourish. Now I’m determined to make a difference for other healthcare professionals because nourishing our souls and protecting our mental health is the only way we can focus on those at the hands of our care.

I have a passion for travel and have nursed in the UK, Australia and New Zealand! But I saw the same problems again and again in every country. Nurses are becoming more and more burnt out. So, through my platform I hope to help nurses create a life where we can all achieve balance before burnout.

Listen to the Podcast! Tune in every Monday for your weekly dose of inspiration to help you bring more balance into your busy nursing life! Balance Before Burnout is where I share all my wisdom when it comes to creating a life that we LOVE whilst being badass nurses too!

On the blog is where you can find all my tips about becoming a more fulfilled nurse and my general life musings. I love to travel and Christmas is my favourite time of year so expect a lot of both. The blog is where you’ll find any updates or basically anything that I’m doing!

A weekly newsletter bringing a little wave of inspiration into your inbox every Wednesday. It’ll be a little letter from me with a different topic each week along with things I’ve personally been enjoying along with a reminder to check in on yourself and your week so far.

Healthy Habits to Adopt as a Nurse (or anyone)!

Personally, I always feel like there’s a negative connotation attached to the word ‘habit’. I think it’s because as children and throughout society we always use the phrase ‘it’s just habit’ as a negative. For example, biting our nails, picking our eyelashes, snoozing...
