In my role as senior lecturer in children's nursing at Sheffield Hallam University, I teach Public Health to undergraduate and postgraduate child nursing students.
I am keen to inspire future children's nurses to see the opportunities for improving children and young people's health and wellbeing through community working. I also have a strong interest in children's critical care and neonatal nursing and lead a module on the postgraduate Children's Acute and Critical Care programme.
My clinical background is in children's nursing where I have worked as a neonatal nurse and more recently worked as a community specialist practitioner in children's community nursing within a complex care team.
I have worked as a Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University since 2012. I teach Public Health across all three years of the undergraduate child nursing programme as well as the postgraduate child nursing programme and have a real enthusiasm for my subject. I was very proud to be a college 'inspirational teacher' in 2017, and am committed to engaging with students and facilitating their personal and professional development.
