I trained as a nurse at Leeds Polytechnic 1981-85. Initially an 'Adult' Nurse I worked in Medicine, Renal and General Surgery. 1988-1989 I trained as a Children's Nurse and worked in the speciaility of Cancer Care for children and young people at the Yorkshire specialist unit 1989-2004; as a Staff Nurse, Sister and finally as a Lecturer Practitioner in conjunction with Leeds University. I had a brief spell as Sister of a busy Children's unit at Airedale hospital before starting a full time career in Education at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), 2006-2017.

At UCLan I was a Senior Lecturer, Course Leader and eventually Principal Lecturer with a lead for Children's Nursing, International placements, Admissions and Business Development. From here I moved into the Charity Sector, working with a leading Children's Cancer Charity, Clic Sargent, as their first Nurse Educator. I worked in the North of England teaching health professionals about the care of children with cancer, promoting safe, confident, care so the children and their families could be cared for as close to home as possible. Following redundacy, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, I moved to my current post at University of Huddersfield; Head of Practice Education (Blended Learning).
