Career rundown

10yrs working for a practice in Brighton, where I studied and gained my qualifications, my role continued to progress here. I then took the plunge, gained my practice licence, and set up as a director alongside my business partner. Having a family around this time I made the decision to start working again for a local practice in Brighton before I moved here.
