I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1987 having completed my training at Staincliffe General Hospital (now Dewsbury & District Hospital).  Shortly after qualifying I got a post as a Staff Nurse on the newly opened Intensive Care Unit at Dewsbury & District Hospital.  By 1993, I was working as a Charge Nurse on the ICU/CCU and began working part time as a Resuscitation Officer, sharing the responsibilities with a colleague. I continued in these two roles until 1999 when I took on the Resuscitation Officer role full time.  I remained in this post until August 2005 when I left to take up the role of Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at the University of Huddersfield.  Since February 2022, I have been the School Director of Clinical Skills Education.

I still teach across a range of pre-registration nursing courses as well as contributing to other health professional courses here at the University.


My Doctor of Education study (2017) focused on the move to an all-graduate entry to nursing in England.

My main research interests include the use of simulation-based learning in health professional education, in terms of student learning, faculty development, and how SBL can best be designed and delivered, nursing education, and acute and critical care nursing, including resuscitation.
