I embarked upon my nursing career in 1986 and never looked back. I qualified as a Registered General Nurse and quickly gained acute respiratory ward experience. However I found my clinical home when a taster of adult intensive care nursing developed into a 12 year career working with and leading a team who delivered award winning critical care. Over this time I was part of the team that developed and expanded high dependency and critical care capacity.

Education was a dominant theme throughout my career with roles in mentorship, critical care education and two Trust-wide roles (Supervised Practice for overseas nurses and Practice Placement Manager).

In 2008 I left the National Health Service and took up a senior lecturer role at The University of Wolverhampton teaching pre-registration adult. My areas of interest are adult critical care, continuous renal replacement therapy, clinical skills and hi-fidelity simulation. I take my passion for nursing into the classroom and I have been awarded Inspirational Lecturer twice and Cutting Edge Teaching Style lecturer all based on the student voice. In 2016 I was one of the three institutional nominations for the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme.

I have worked as part of a team of academics to develop an innovative curriculum for the Master of Adult Nursing / Master of Mental Health Nursing and I am the award leader for this course which promotes Enquiry Based Learning and the grading of clinical practice.
