I qualified as a Registered Nurse (Adult) in 1990 and worked in a variety of clinical settings including cardiology, intensive care, medicine and gastroenterology. In 1998 I completed a BSc (Hons) in Nursing Practice, followed by an MSc in Health Sciences in 2000 and then an MA in Higher Education in 2003. I joined the school of health sciences in 2001 as a lecturer, with a PhD studentship secondment running from 2007 to 2011. In 2012 I completed my PhD; a study exploring experiences of living with hepatitis C; the results of which have been published and disseminated at conferences nationally. Since 2012 I have been involved in numerous evaluative studies relating to practice learning, practice assessment, enquiry based learning and nursing curricular reviews. I became the  assessment lead for the school in 2016, since when I have become active in assessment and feedback research projects. I was awarded a university teaching fellowship in 2017 and have developed a specialism in the use of electronic marking. I am the Course Director for the successful post registration Acute Critical and Emergency care BSc programme and am the module lead for acute and critical care, both at UG and PG levels. I am a UK Resuscitation Council Instructor in Advanced Life Support and also an instructor for acute illness recognition and treatment courses, working with multidisciplinary health care teams. In 2018 I became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
