Practice Manager

Practice Manager

Mrs Michelle Freeburn Dip.PPM (Distinction), Dip. RSA, MIHM, MInstLM

I have worked within the field of management since 1997, starting my career with Lloyds Pharmacy. I moved into General Practice in 2004, joining the team at Bow in 2009. I really enjoy working within the healthcare community, providing support to patients, the practice team and our attached staff.

My duties outside of the practice include; Chair of the Pan Devon Practice Managers Forum and board member of Mid Devon Healthcare.

I constantly endeavour to balance my career and home life, which is challenging with two growing children. I enjoy  spending time with my family, going to the theatre, listening to a wide range of music and reading.
