Annemarie's first nursing role was at the Christie Hospital, South Manchester, after which she moved to the healthcare industry sector, specifically woundcare and product management in diabetes in the point of care arena. From 2001 she worked across the north west of the UK, gaining practice nurse and accident and emergency experience. In 2007 Annemarie returned full time to her nursing career, spending a decade living and working in the Channel Islands.
