Senior Stroke Research Nurse
Seona graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2001 with a BSc in Nursing Studies. She then took up her first hospital post in Renal HDU then moved on after a couple of years into Transplant nursing where she worked for 8 years until a spinal injury from International hockey meant redeployment into the less physically demanding role Stroke Research Nurse in 2010.
Since 2010 Seona has enjoyed the wide and varied portfolio of stroke trials she has both recruited to and co-ordinated. Her motivation for research stems from her love of people and striving to find the evidence base for practice in this specialised area.
Outside of work Seona enjoys being with her family, and she in never happier than camping in the woods with her family and a roaring fire.
