Having been a nurse for over 30 years now I have gained much experience in the fields of Elderly Care and Peri-operative Care. More recently I have had the opportunity to focus on an aspect of my career that I have always enjoyed, that of teaching and supporting students. I am currently a Clinical Skills lecturer, module lead for pre-registration nursing students and also manage a module in the post graduate Certificate in Peri-operative Care.
I am also continuing my own development, I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2017 and am currently working towards completion of the Masters in Education for the Health Professions here in Swansea University. As a Dementia Champion I have had the opportunity to highlight Dementia Care within the University and am currently leading a project which will identify the CHHS in St.David’s Park, Carmarthen as the first Dementia Friendly Campus in Wales.
Providing support and motivation to others for their career is my priority.
