Before her diagnosis Becky was embarking on a promising career in public health improvement. She had completed her PhD at Strathclyde University, during which time she worked extensively to deliver health education within communities in rural Malawi, a country which she developed a great passion for.
She also held degrees in health psychology from Stirling and Glasgow universities and had successfully completed her chartership. She had just bought her first flat along with her husband Alasdair who she married the year before. She was a true people person, and was happiest when spending time with friends, family and in her church community.
