Senior Lecturer

Nursing and Allied Health


I am a senior lecturer at the School of Nursing and Allied Health. I qualified as a registered adult nurse in the mid 2000’s and has since worked almost exclusively in community settings in different roles, namely community staff nurse, District Nurse, Community Matron and as a community respiratory nurse specialist. Towards the latter part of my clinical career, I was working within an integrated care organisation.

My area of expertise is public health and supporting patients with long term conditions in the community. I hold great pride and belonging in being a District Nurse. I teach mainly on the public health and community nursing modules. I have also held the service user coordinator and lead role at the School working with “real life” service users to support teaching and learning. I am also a registered NMC teacher and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

My area of research until recently has been in the application of virtual reality (VR) in health education with a burgeoning interest in the area of artificial intelligence in healthcare.
