Upon completion of her BSc in Psychology, Sue moved into acute hospital management, initially through the “NHS Management Training Scheme” based jointly at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) in Norfolk and the University of Birmingham. Upon completion of this two-year training scheme, and after obtaining her MSc. in Healthcare Management, she became the Service Manager for Urology and Nephrology, and latterly for Radiology. Sue then moved to the East of England Ambulance Service, where she was the Service and Contracts Manager for all the non-emergency Ambulance Services across the county of Suffolk, England.
Sue and her family moved to Bern in 2010 and she now works in the field of home support for newborn babies, children and adults, with an interest in promoting and enabling independence and self-confidence for individuals and families. Sue also volunteers to help Bern asylum seekers with learning basic level German. She is a first aid trainer for HealthFirst, with a considerable amount of hands-on experience from her nursing days.
