Just to say hello

So this is my first ever blog post! Seems like everyone is doing it so thought I’d join in 🙂 I’m a locum consultant surgeon in NI – one of only 2 female surgeons with a colorectal interest! I’m passionate about encouraging more women into surgery and defying the stereotype. This has been prompted by a Twitter campaign challenging gender stereotypes in professions that are traditionally thought of as male – it all started with #ILookLikeanEngineer and has progressed on to #ILookLikeaSurgeon. It’s great to see so many amazing women challenging stereotypes!
