Nadia began her career as a software development project manager in London. Her projects included supporting the design, development and implementation of a database and submission portal tailored for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Child and Young Person Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP-IAPT) project.

Nadia’s last role in London was as a Database Officer for the Queen Mary University of London Alumni Directorate, where she was responsible for the upkeep of data and roll-out of database usage across the university. During this time, she was awarded her APM Project Management qualification.

After moving to Hampshire, Nadia became the Business Support Assistant for Wessex AHSN, spending two years honing her knowledge of the local NHS landscape as well as managing events and providing administrative and project support for the organisation. She joined the Innovation Adoption team in 2018 and has since been overseeing the implementation and evaluation of digital health innovations in a primary care setting.

During the COVID-19 response, Nadia was assigned the temporary manager of the Wessex AHSN Digital First Primary Care programme, aligning AHSN activities to the needs of the frontline. In the transition back to business as usual roles as part of the NHS Reset, Nadia continues her role as an Innovation Adoption programme coordinator managing and supporting projects in primary care and is additionally the Digital Coordinator for the AHSN.

Nadia was a successful applicant of the NHS Digital Academy Cohort 2, completing a postgraduate diploma in Digital Health Leadership in 2020. She is undertaking a dissertation at Imperial College London to obtain a Master of Science degree.
