I completed my BSC (Hons) in Adult Nursing in 1998 in Leicester following that clinically I have worked as a Registered Nurse in ED Surgical Admissions General Practice & an Independent providers before gravitating towards clinical education. During my clinical posts I was a education sister and my natural progression was towards a full time post as clinical skills lead for University Hospital of Leicester. Working closely with University of Leicester I ran clinical skills education for both UHL and Leicester Medical School for over 10 years. My experience in Higher Education began at De Montfort University as a skills lecturer and in July 2020 completed my MSC in Improving Healthcare Practice and was successfully appointed as a nursing lecturer at University of Leicester. My focus is clinical skills interprofessional education and peer enhancement.
