Lecturer and Clinical Link Tutor

I am a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and also a Community Nurse Prescriber. I qualified as a nurse in 2005, having a varied nursing career. I have been able to expand my knowledge and skills in the following areas: dermatology, community nursing, tissue viability, frailty, and surgical care.

I have been passionate in supporting patients, families, and carers in relation to palliative and end of life care and have taken pride in providing patient-centred, holistic care. 

I have a particular interest in skin and wound care, of both acute and chronic wounds, and I am grateful for the extended knowledge and skills my role as a tissue viability nurse gave me. 

I have always enjoyed mentoring and supporting student nurses within all my clinical areas, and I am excited to continue this journey within academia. I have continued to develop my own knowledge and skills, and have undertaken the mentorship qualification, practice assessor training, community nurse prescribing, clinical skills qualification, and completed a MSc module within dermatology on recognising skin lesions and management.

I am looking forward to supporting students to reach their full potential for a career and lifelong learning and development within nursing and have an interest in leadership and management and culture within healthcare.

For my own future development, I am particularly interested in women's health and look forward to what this role will enable for my own professional academic growth.

I am a Lecturer on BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice. I teach across a variety of modules across all three years of the course and I am a personal tutor to BSc (Hons) students.
