My interest in medical matters is in my blood: my paternal grandmother was a "woman who birthed people and laid them out" and on my mother's side my ancestors were named Leech (from the Saxon "Laece" meaning healer).

I have been a professional Historical Interpreter since 2005 and my interest in the many aspects of medical history has grown. I strive to bring academic rigour (I am a graduate of Cardiff, Birmingham and Staffordshire Universities and hold the Diploma in Medical History) to my displays and presentations so all aspects have been thoroughly researched using primary and secondary sources.

I have been the resident medieval surgeon for Tewkesbury Medieval Festival for a number of years and regularly appear at Hampton Court Castle, Leominster, The Commandery Worcester; Ludlow Castle and a number of community historical festivals. I have also worked for the National Trust and English Heritage.

I have written a number of books and articles on aspects of medical history.

I have also appeared in a number of documentaries, the latest being series 2 of "Mystic Britain": "Leeches, Plagues and Potions" and "The Great Plague" for Channel 5.
