After becoming the RAF's first female medical cadet in 1962, she graduated from St Andrews University as a doctor in 1965. After eight years in the RAF, she became a General Practitioner based near Gatwick Airport, West Sussex and at the same time was sessionally employed in various specialties at local hospitals. She is a qualified Christian counsellor and with her husband has been involved in delivering relationship education for couples pre and post marriage. Like her husband Liz is also a member of the Plymouth Minster Choir.
