I have an extensive clinical and managerial background of over 25 years, predominantly in the field of emergency care where I worked from staff nurse level to clinical nurse manager, matron and Emergency Nurse Practitioner.
I held a national role as instructor, course director and steering committee member of the Advanced Trauma Nursing Course for 15 years and have a specialist interest in the management of major and multiple trauma.
Prior to joining MMU in 2010, I spent a number of years in strategic roles assisting the NHS and public sector organisations through service change and planning their future workforce.
I teach across all years of the BSc Adult nursing programme, the Diploma in Paramedic Studies and the MSc Emergency Medicine - Nursing route.
