I joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2005 as a Senior Lecturer. Prior to this I worked in the Community as a District Nurse. My role in District Nursing furnished me with the experience and skills to proceed into the teaching domain. I was fortunate enough to experience working in several different health economies both in the Midlands and in London and Berkshire.

I originally started my nursing career as a Pupil Nurse in 1983 and later becoming an Enrolled Nurse. I was able to convert this qualification by undertaking a year- long conversion course and became a Registered General Nurse in 1990. I am currently the Deputy Chair for Penn Surgery Patient Participation Group and work extremely close with Wolverhampton CCG as a lay member.
