I am passionate about nursing and teaching, as well as continually gaining new knowledge. I am currently studying for a Masters in Education for Health Professionals.

I am a dual qualified nurse, RGN and RMN and prior to entering academia, I specialised in Primary Mental Health, CAMHS over a number of years.
