About

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 2001 and specialised clinically in both acute and long term management of neurological conditions. I started working full time as a lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in 2009, but has also continued some clinical practice alongside this.

I have taught on and led inter-professional teaching across the College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences and is also currently involved in multidisciplinary teaching to aid workforce development and integrated practice for service providers.

I completed an evaluation of a bespoke training course, designed and delivered by SHU and the impact on integrated practice, as part of her MSc in Advancing Professional Practice. Aimee now has a supervisory role within PG dissertations.
