Julie was an A&E nurse and started at Bucks in 2002 as a Senior Lecturer in Nursing. She has since held various roles in the Faculty of Society & Health, before moving into the Learning and Teaching Directorate as the Academic Enhancement Manager and then to her current role in June 2016.

Julie said: “I never thought that life would take me from emergency nursing into Higher Education. I was thrilled to receive the honour of becoming a National Teaching Fellow and humbled by the supporting comments that people gave me to support my nomination. I had a fantastic night. It was great to meet and celebrate with the other NTF award winners.”
