Lecturer and AESiP - Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship
I am a Lecturer and an Apprenticeship Educational Supervisor in Practice in the School of Nursing and Health Science.
I joined the University of Sunderland in 2022 following a career as a Registered Mental Health Nurse with the National Health Service (NHS). Throughout my career, I have gained valuable experience by working in a range of clinical and non-clinical settings. These included Mental Health Adult and Older Peoples Inpatient Services,
Community/Crisis Services and a Patient Safety Team in the Nursing and Governance Directorate which was supported by learning in academic university institutions.

Prior to working at the University of Sunderland, I worked for the NHS for 26 years and in my previous role for six years as a Serious Incident Investigator.
During my time with the National Health Service, in 2014, the NHS Trust supported my development to undertake and complete a BA (Hons) in Practice Innovation. I then completed and achieved an MSc in Global Leadership and Management in Healthcare in 2023.
