“I’m really excited to share my first body of work, a 6 track EP with songs that reflect what I’m about as an artist. I hope you will be able to connect with my experiences, and come with me on this journey of self-discovery and fulfillment,” affirmed the Psychiatrist who works at an NHS owned hospital in the area. “I’ve written the songs at different points in my life - capturing the moments where I felt really strong and others where I felt very vulnerable. I’m also excited to share one of the songs that came from one of my vulnerable moments with God.”
In her medical work, the graduate of The University of Glasgow won a top award at the inaugural NHS Lanarkshire Trainee Audit Prize 2013 in Mental Health.
