Lecturer in Occupational Therapy

I am an Occupational Therapist and I have recently joined the teaching team as a Lecturer on BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy.

I have an extensive clinical background, specialising in paediatrics, people with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities), postural management and wheelchair services. I have worked in both acute and community physical occupational therapy settings.

I have previous HE teaching experience from Sheffield Hallam University, and I gained management experience from a senior role in a third sector charity organisation. I have also recently worked with the Ministry of Justice as a Registered Intermediary, facilitating access and engagement for young and vulnerable witnesses with the criminal justice system.

Research interests for potential research students

  • Occupational therapy
  • People with PMLD
  • Lived experiences and co-production


I hold an MRes and my research topic was the lived experiences of a person with PMLD as they sought real, paid employment, facilitated by an Occupational Therapy approach.

My personal research interests include: people with PMLD, lived experiences, meaningful occupations, and co-production.

In previous NHS, Local Authority and independent sector roles, I have completed service audits, service evaluations and utilised evidence-based practice as a clinician.
