Marie started her career in 1994 qualifying as a midwife in 1997 in Eastbourne. Marie has worked in a variety of clinical settings in Sussex and progressed to a senior clinical leader. Marie has specialised training in women’s health, included as a Professional Midwifery Advocate in 2010 enabling Marie, as a senior midwife, to offer care and support to colleagues in the workplace, focusing on building resilience by allowing time for reflection and discussion, in an advocacy role and working in partnership with women and families making decisions about their care.
Marie has a keen interest in promoting women’s wellbeing, whilst taking the time to listen, educate and motivate them, looking at lifestyle and choices alongside traditional medical models of treatment. She strongly believes that in order to help them to maintain their health, confidence and wellbeing and ultimately to thrive through the menopause, women need to be empowered to make decisions focusing not only on the biological aspects of the menopause but also on lifestyle nutrition, physical and mental health.
