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 Celeste and I’m one of the Stop Smoking Specialists within our wonderful team! I will work with you during your time on the program to give you the best support possible, help you make some big changes and reach your goals. When I’m not running around after my two fluffy and very cheeky dogs you can usually find me teaching dance and yoga classes, baking some delicious goodies and being out and about in nature!
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.
