I have worked in Higher Education for approximately thirteen years; I have a strong passion towards learning and teaching and have considerable experience in critical care nursing and nurse education. I have demonstrated through previous roles sound academic leadership and management skills. My previous posts have required the ability to be self-motivated with the capability to think strategically and operationally so that the organisational goals can be disseminated to staff to facilitate organisational change. I am committed to the continuous improvement of health care delivery through practice and education opportunities.
