Nicola moved to Devon in 2014 and loves everything about it. She has worked in the NHS for most of her working life, starting as a nurse in London.

She left the NHS in the autumn of 2018 and has set up her own company Montpelier Management Services providing training and support for local healthcare organizations with a range of services, mainly supporting small companies and charities with their tender bid writing along with project work that they may need on a short term basis.
