I trained as a Nurse in Wakefield, qualifying in 1985. I have professional registrations with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered General Nurse and a Registered Teacher. I have worked clinically as a registered nurse in a variety of adult care environments.
I completed a Master of Health Professional Education at the Huddersfield University in 2009.
I am involved in the Sheffield Hallam University recruitment team, with a focus on the recruitment of pre-registration students to undergraduate and postgraduate nursing and midwifery courses.
I am a Link Lecturer covering the Barnsley area placement sites, working in partnership with learners in practice, clinical practice colleagues and university placement leads.
