She has experience in acute and community mental health settings, including specialist forensic, vocational and rehabilitation services.

Zoe has since worked with the education and training department at South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, co-designing and co-facilitating recovery and social inclusion training with service user trainers. In higher education, she provided support to students experiencing mental health difficulties and trained staff and students in mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

She values the opportunity to contribute to the development of this essential workforce and is particularly interested in person-centred care, the interaction between mental and physical health needs, mental health and dementia.
