I’m Rachel, one of the Stop Smoking Advisors and I’ve worked here for over 2 years. Outside of work I like to be outdoors as much as possible with my partner and two daughters. I have plenty to keep me busy with 8 pet lambs, 6 chickens, my German shepherd Marley and cat Daisy. I love being in nature, hiking, running and exploring new places and I also love eating out and trying new foods. My sister nicknames me ‘Dora the Explorer’.

Hi, I’m Emma, a Specialist Stop Smoking Advisor. I love my job and the team, and it’s my 21st year with the service. I co-facilitate training and mentoring of the Newcastle Pharmacy staff along with supporting clients through the programme. I enjoy a sense of job satisfaction when I support someone in their health and wellbeing journey. I like being outdoors with my family, (but I must have a coffee stop along the way), sunny beach holidays and eating out with friends.

Hello, I'm Phoebe, I’ve been a Stop Smoking Advisor for over 2 years. I support clients through their quit journeys and find it fulfilling to help others better their health, wellbeing and achieve their goals. I spend my spare time with family and friends, enjoy exercise classes (my favourites are spin and pilates), and also enjoy long walks. I love to travel, my favourite destinations have been India, Vietnam, and Bali, with Australia next on my bucket list.

Hi, I’m Anne and I have worked in the field of smoking cessation since 2004 having previously worked in the Public Health sector improving risk factors for coronary heart disease (CHD) prevention. I am passionate about my job; every client brings with them their own personality which makes every interaction different and personal. My job is challenging, but very rewarding, supporting a person through their own quit journey is very satisfactory. My main hobby is spent out of doors with my two cavvapoos.

Hi, I’m Kay, the Senior Administrator for the service. I will usually be the first person to answer your telephone calls to refer you onto the service or answer any questions you may have. I’m passionate about making a difference and being part of something that gives people the tools to improve their health and wellbeing. In my spare time I enjoy arts and crafts such as painting and cross stitch, online and tabletop gaming and spending time with my loved ones.
