I qualified as a diagnostic radiographer at the University of Bradford in 2004. Since then, I have had a very varied and often exciting radiography career working in several different countries. I am now a senior MRI radiographer and have spent the bulk of my career working in medical research which has included an MSc in Medical MRI from City University in 2012, as well as several publications. When I qualified as a radiographer, I could never have imagined how much I would get out of the profession and volunteering as a trustee for the SOR Benevolent Fund is my way of giving back to radiography. I have learned a lot from my fellow trustees, and it is very gratifying to see how impactful the grants we make have been.
