My name is Caroline and I’ve started a blog
I grew up on the small island of Jersey (I am a Jersey Bean!) and have always been interested in public health, yet it has only been the past few years that this has been explicitly realised. I obtained a BA in Sociology with Social Psychology (2006) and an MSc in Occupational Health Psychology (2007) and most recently completed an MPhil in Public Health (2011). I’ve worked in a number of workplaces including a national public health team, a local health improvement team and a short stint at a healthcare management consultancy firm.
I’m a Public Health Specialty Registrar (ST2) currently stationed in a PCT. I work on a number of projects where I develop skills and reflect on learning, as a means of becoming a Consultant in Public Health (accredited by the Faculty of Public Health) *hopefully* in 2015. Overall I really enjoy my job – It’s varied, meaningful work that challenges me.
