Dr Curtis trained in medicine in Edinburgh, London and Bristol.  She worked as a Research Fellow at Imperial College, studying non-invasive patterns of hemodynamic changes in heart failure under Professor Alun Hughes and Dr Kim Parker. She was appointed as a Specialist Registrar in North West Thames in 2000 and became interested in Congenital Heart Disease in Adults (ACHD)  whilst working in the Royal Brompton Hospital in London under Professor Michael Gatzoulis. She then moved to Bristol to take up the Fourth National Training Number in ACHD to complete her training, which involved 6 months working in the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

She was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist in Adult Congenital Heart Disease at University Hospitals Bristol in 2009.

Dr Curtis is British Society of Echocardiography Accredited in both transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and a member of the European Association of Echocardiography.

Dr Curtis is the cardiology lead for the Cardiac Pregnancy Service, which comprises a team of maternal medicine obstetricians, anaesthetists, midwives and cardiologists in delivering care to pregnant women with heart disease.
