Date joined the practice December 2019

Born in Germany, my family and I moved around the world with my father’s job in HM Forces. After my father left the Army, we settled in North Yorkshire then Durham.
I commenced my ambulance career in 2000 and have worked as a Paramedic Practitioner in the North East of England spending some time with the neonatal intensive care and retrieval service in Newcastle. I completed my first Masters degree in 2015 and continue to teach on the MSc Clinical Skills and Paramedic course at the University of Sunderland. I started my move to primary and urgent care in 2014 and continue to develop my skills in this area.
I live in Coldstream with my wife and our young son. We spend much of our time out with our dog and commuting between the Borders and our croft on the Isle of Skye. My hobbies include ski touring, kayaking and restoring old Landrovers that invariably spend most of the time in my garage.

Joined The Practice: May 2020

After working as a paramedic and teaching emergency care in Austria, I qualified as a nurse in 1995, and came to the UK in 1998. My main background is in critical and emergency care, and I worked in this capacity for over 20 years in Intensive Care units in London, Oxford, Austria, Switzerland, and Australia, and even as far afield as Kent!

After a spell as a flight nurse, bringing patients back home from overseas on air ambulances and scheduled flights, I wanted to do something more community based, and started working as a nurse practitioner for primary care services and GP surgeries in 2015.
Having moved to the lovely Scottish Borders, I joined Eyemouth Medical Practice in May 2020. I am enjoying very much being part of the health care team serving this community. When I’m not at work, you may see me – come rain or shine – riding my motorcycle through this beautiful landscape.
