Charlotte Young is the Pears Cumbria School of Medicine’s Communications and Engagement Officer.  Charlotte attended William Howard School in Brampton then studied Performing Arts at ‘Performers College’ in Essex. After graduating she worked professionally in Theatre and TV, both in the UK and Internationally, before returning home to Cumbria in 2005.

Charlotte became a teacher and multi-territory business owner across South and West Cumbria, then became Operations Director for a children’s Theatre School franchise working with high-profile brands such as Universal, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. Ent, and 20th Century Fox.

Following life-changing surgery in 2022, Charlotte became a Cochlear Implant recipient and community mentor and this was a key driver for Charlotte to pursue new challenges and the medical school seemed like a perfect opportunity. Charlotte is excited to be joining the Pears Cumbria School of Medicine and a place to make a difference in the local community.
