In April 2021, Jennifer started her role as Clinic Director at Nova Healthcare in Leeds. She has joined a small but enthusiastic team, who provide specialist cancer services to private and NHS patients.
Jennifer has focused on healthcare throughout her career and worked in a variety of roles and organisations. In her first job after university she worked in pharmaceutical sales then moved on to work in primary care. Later Jennifer specialised in cancer care and eventually became the UK National Sales Manager.
A change of direction for family reasons led Jennifer to her first role in NHS management at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust. After that, she spent several years in the private hospital sector working at The Yorkshire Clinic and BMI The Huddersfield Hospital (formerly The Nuffield Hospital).
Throughout this time, she has gained an understanding of how healthcare services are delivered from almost every perspective. Jennifer has seen many changes in policy and consultant practice. However, her aim has always been to keep patient care at the centre of everything.
Having joined Nova Healthcare from Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Jennifer is pleased to work in the private healthcare sector again. She is looking forward to working with her colleagues at Aspen and Nova Healthcare.
As Clinic Director, Jennifer plans to continue expanding and developing our services and to provide high quality care to as many patients as possible.
Jennifer has two grown-up children: a son in Manchester and a daughter who lives in New Zealand. During her spare time she likes travelling and spending time in Scotland, where she enjoy fishing, walking and eating out. Some of her other hobbies include running and attending dance classes.
