I am based in the Department for Social Work, Social Care and Community Studies. I am also the Department Lead for Interprofessional Education.
I began working with young people in 1996 and have worked for Local Authorities, Voluntary Sector, the NHS and as a consultant with The Department for Education. I become a Senior Lecturer in 2004 and began working at Sheffield Hallam in 2006. I am committed to providing a supportive and inspiring learning experience, where learning, teaching and assessment are equally enjoyable and fulfilling for our students.
