Growing up on the island, Dr Le Cheminant attended the Castel Primary School and Ladies’ College before completing her higher education at the University of Cambridge followed by her MBBS qualification at King’s College London.
While training as an anaesthetist in the UK, she gained extensive experience working for six months in 2017 in Zambia at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka as a Visiting Lecturer in Anaesthesia. She developed a specialist interest in paediatric, ophthalmic and obstetric anaesthesia, having completed advanced training in each of these areas during her time in the UK.

She is heavily involved in charitable work and has volunteered with Orbis International, with recent projects in Vietnam, Malawi and Mongolia.
“I love working in the surgical team and caring for my patients throughout their surgical journey, from the pre-operative clinic all the way to the recovery room. Teaching and training are additional aspects of my role I find very rewarding.”
Dr Le Cheminant loves spending time with her husband, her step-daughter, and her extended family. She also volunteers her time to support students at Newnham College, Cambridge in their career options, as a way of helping the next generation of young people find the right path for their future.
