I qualified as a General Nurse in 1978 and subsequently qualified as a Registered Midwife in 1980.  I have worked in a variety of settings, both in UK and abroad. I have worked as a midwife in community and hospital environments, including neonatal units. I undertook further training in Care of the Intensive and Special care infants, before undertaking my Advanced diploma in Midwifery prior to my teaching qualification. I have particular interest and expertise in infant/breast feeding and complementary therapies.

I also act as Faculty Enabling Tutor for the Institute of Health Professions, Public Health and Social Care and Social work. I act as BFI lead for Midwifery programmes at University of Wolverhampton and have been responsible for achieving and maintaining BFI accreditation. I currently also teach into Specialist programmes for Health Visiting in respect of breast feeding.
