Senior Lecturer

I am a Senior Lecturer and Year 3 lead for BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Practice. I was in clinical practice for 25 years prior to moving to the University of Sunderland in 2018. My specialist area is oncology and end of life care and I've had the opportunity to work in many of the acute trusts across the North East.

I have held a variety of senior nursing posts, including Lead Nurse, Clinical Operational Manager and Matron in both Medicine and Surgery. I have a special interest in Advanced Communication Skills, Leadership and Management and End of Life Care.
