Professional Experience

  • A break away from construction saw Ryan retrain as a Children’s nurse spending 3 year at university and 6 years as a children’s intensive care nurse in London and Cambridge specialising in neurological and cardiac conditions. This experience gave me more insight into critical teamwork and achieving deadlines under extreme pressures.
