About

I am a Senior Lecturer in Children’s Nursing within the Faculty on Education, Health and Wellbeing.  My interests lie in advanced practice, cardiology, clinical skills and diverse families within healthcare.  Since completing my undergraduate degree in Children’s Nursing at Swansea University I have worked in various roles at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. My main areas of clinical nursing experience are within children’s cardiology and cross-speciality through a Hospital at Night service.  I am also an instructor with the United Kingdom Resuscitation Council on the European Paediatric Advanced Life Support (EPALS) course.

My role current role includes module leadership on a second year skills module and teaching involvement on generic skills modules. Working within the University includes support and development of the local network of placement providers. This allows both students and mentors to be supported by a member of the academic team whilst students are in practice.

I am currently undertaking the Professional Doctorate in Health and Wellbeing
