I joined the University of Sunderland in April 2018. I am a Registered Social Worker and have worked in Social Work education in the North East since 2008, after 15 years of practice experience in the field of mental health. I am now privileged to lead an enthusiastic team of experienced academic staff who work across the Social Work and Community and Youth Work Studies courses.

I teach on a range of modules across the BA (Hons) and MA qualifying Social Work courses. My key areas of interest are mental health, mental capacity, social work law, ethics and values.
