Meet the Team




First job role: Newspaper delivery boy

I set up Crowns in 2007 and ever since have had the fortune of working with many amazing people within the dental care profession. The ambition of Crowns has always been to provide a flexible and supportive working environment for those who work for us, while also delivering a positive and responsive service for our clients.

When not working I’m kept busy chasing around after our 3 children. I enjoy the outdoors, rugby and when I get chance developing my novice piano skills.  



Head of Operations

My connection with Crowns started 13 years ago when Rob placed me as a practice manager at a practice in Harrogate. I worked there for 10 years and then in 2019 I came to work for Crowns, after a short break following the arrival of my second son.

I have two boys who keep my very busy and when I am not spending time with my family I like to swim, garden and watch football.
