About

I qualified as a midwife in 1985 and worked as a staff midwife at Good Hope Maternity hospital (now part of Heart of England NHS Trust). I gained all round experience at that trust, working on antenatal wards, postnatal, delivery suite. In 2000 I stated working as an F grade community midwife until 2006. Whilst on community I worked as a team leader and gained experience managing caseloads, homebirths, conducting parent education classes and mentoring students. I particularly enjoyed working with student midwives, in particular clinical teaching and assessing of competencies.


I then decided to go into midwifery education and having started my Post Graduate Certificate in education started work as a lecturer at Birmingham City University in 2006. I completed my PGCE and became a senior lecturer in 2008. I worked at Birmingham City University for 8 years, teaching on the antenatal, intrapartum, postnatal and research modules. I then moved to the University of Wolverhampton in 2014 as a senior lecturer in midwifery. My current role includes managing modules, principles of intrapartum care, postnatal care of mother and baby and public health. I also teach on other modules including the inter-professional module in particular professional, legal and ethical issues.


I participate in recruitment and selection of students for both the 18 month a 3 year programmes.
I am linked to Sandwell and City Trust where I have personal students and also participate in the midwifery mentor updates on a regular basis.
