A nurse by training, June joined The Leprosy Mission in 1975 and worked in Papua New Guinea until 1993. Apart from her leprosy control work with the national programme, June grew in experience and reputation as one of the most experienced, fun and energetic trainers in the leprosy world.

After completing her MSc in 1994, she was seconded to the All-Africa Leprosy Rehabilitation and Training Centre (ALERT), Ethiopia as Educational Support Coordinator until 1997, when she joined TLM’s International Office team as Technical Support and Staff Development Officer.

Part of her role included working with the Teaching and Learning Materials unit of ILEP (TALMilep), which used to have its main store of materials at TLM’s office. In 2000, June was appointed as TLM International’s Director of Personnel and later as Director of Knowledge Management until her retirement in September 2011.

Outside of TLM, June was a visiting lecturer at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. As Jannine Ebenso said of those lectures, “her lectures were always the most fun and those of us who followed in her footsteps had a high bar to reach!” She also served on the Editorial Board of Leprosy Review, as well as on the ILEP Technical Commission. She co-edited ‘Partners’ magazine for many years.
