I joined the University of Huddersfield in September 2015 as a lecturer in Adult Nursing. I have a particular interest in clinical skills development, exploring peer led teaching and have a passionate interest in Cardiology, Health Promotion, Managing Acutely Ill Adults and the care of patients with long term conditions. I have developed a keen interest in exploring mental health problems in people with long term conditions and how mental health is taught within the undergraduate nursing programmes.
I transferred from the University of Leeds following a 2 year teaching secondment from my nursing post as a Coronary Care Sister and Ward Manager. I have a Masters Degree in Ethics and Law, PGCE in Education with a Fellowship of the Higher Education Authority. I am also Advanced Life Support and Moving and Handling Trainer.
