Philippa's professional career has been varied and involved teaching in a wide range of educational settings starting in 1989. She has worked in educational fields in England, Australia and Hong Kong.

As a Community Teacher and Early Years Advisory Teacher for Sheffield Local Authority, Philippa supported early childhood PVI and maintained sector settings alongside childminders and parents.

She is also a keen researcher and current doctoral research is designed to hear the voices of parents of children with anaphylaxis in early childhood settings across health, education and care.
