Dr. Susan Fletcher-Jones

Medical Doctor

I went from being a mature student with no Leaving Cert and little confidence in 1994 to graduating from Maynooth University in 1997 with two lifelong best friends and a BA degree in Sociology and Classics. Attaining that degree was the proudest and happiest moment of my life. I did my final thesis in Sociology and I can honestly say that I am where I am today, personally and professionally thanks to the encouragement and belief of the staff in the Sociology and Classics Department. They helped me believe that I was as good as anyone else and awakened a love of learning in me which I never knew I had. Directly because of the foundation I received at Maynooth University I was accepted and ultimately graduated from medical school in 2008-my second proudest moment to date. I currently work as a doctor in a busy Dublin hospital. Thank you to everyone who helped and encouraged and believed in me even when I thought I couldn't do it... Dr Susan Fletcher- Jones
