I am an adult nurse who trained within Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corp in the British Army and I have enjoyed providing care to patients in both NHS and military environments. I have always had a passion for nursing in an acute setting and I focussed on acute adult care working primarily in critical care (ITU) but I also gained experience in orthopaedics and acute assessment areas. I have a huge love for simulation which I utilise regularly to help teach student nurses learn the clinical skills which are essential for looking after their patients. I also thoroughly enjoy research based nursing and provide teaching to the MSci Nursing with Leadership dual registration programme by combining realistic scenarios with evidence supported practice. I have been lecturing at University of Leicester since 2019 and I am excited to help teach the future nursing work force.


I am due to embark on new research for a post graduate teaching qualification starting in Sept 2021. I plan to focus on the importance of inter-professional education (IPE) its role in developing leadership within the clinical work force and how IPE can lead to better student experience and patient outcomes.
