I am a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery and have worked at the University since September 2019. I qualified as a Registered Nurse at Manchester Royal Infirmary in 1992 and moved to St James’s Hospital as a Staff Nurse on the Renal Unit, working mainly in Renal Dialysis and Renal Transplant. I left the UK in 1997 to intersperse work with travel and worked in New Zealand in a variety of locations and Critical Care specialties including Intensive Care and Cardiothoracic Surgery.
I returned to the UK in 2001 as a Staff Nurse in Intensive Care at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. I pursued further study during this period and completed an MSc in Advanced Professional Practice and a PGCE. In 2003 I joined the teaching team at the University of Leeds initially as a Lecturer Practitioner, then in 2007 as a Lecturer in Adult Nursing where I stayed until moving to the University of Huddersfield in 2019.
