Simon qualified as a doctor in 2007 from the University of Leicester. He worked in acute medicine and emergency medicine for several years. Since 2014 he has worked full time in the pharmaceutical industry, predominantly focussing on clinical risk management, data analysis and reporting. He also continues to work in A+E as a locum doctor.
Simon met Shelley in 2012 when they both worked in Cheltenham General Hospital. They realised they both had a shared interest in medical aesthetics and a mutual life goal of running their own businesses. Simon completed his aesthetics training on Harley Street in January 2017 and swiftly set up business with Shelley. He became a director of Shelley Folkes Aesthetics in 2018. Simon enjoys the practical clinical procedures and the close relationships with clients that medical aeasthetics offers.
Despite running Shelley Folkes Aesthetics, working full time in the pharmaceutical industry and doing ad-hoc A+E locums, Simon does have some spare time! He is an avid traveller, plays the piano, and enjoys crossfit.
