After being part of a medical mission to Kampala in association with KCC in 2012 when she saw how desperate the healthcare situation was in Uganda, Dee wanted to be involved with something that would improve healthcare for Ugandans. Since then, she and Arnold have collaborated over the establishment and running of Destiny Medical Centre. As Medical Director she has been involved in the business modelling for the clinic as well as the sourcing of the equipment that will be installed in the centre and also fundraising for the equipment.
Dr Dee, as she is affectionately called in Uganda, graduated from the University of Cape Town in South Africa with an MBChB medical degree. She spent 12 years working in primary care in South Africa including having her own practice before moving to the UK with her family in 2002 where she has been working as a GP since then. She also has her RCGP (Royal College of General Practitioners) certification as well as a PGD in The Menopause as Women’s Health is her special interest. She is presently completing a Physician CEO course run by the Kellogg Business School at Northwestern University, which is an MBA course designed exclusively for doctors running businesses.
