Personal profile

Scholarly biography

I am a registered children’s nurse and completed a Bachelor of Nursing in 1997. I worked as a staff nurse at Birmingham Children’s Hospital before travelling to Australia to work on children’s wards in New South Wales, Northern Territory, Western Australia and Queensland.

I relocated to Brighton in 2003 and worked in clinical and practice development roles having developed an interest in nurse education. I  completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Health and Social Care Education in 2010 and from 2012-2015 I was involved in the University’s partnership work to launch the first paediatric nursing course in Zambia. I completed my Master's dissertation in 2014 on culturally safe approaches to health partnership work.

I joined the University full time in 2014 and gained a Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy in 2017. My interests are law and ethics in children’s healthcare and sustainability in healthcare education.

Research interests

I am a member of the School of Sport and Health Sciences Sustainability Special Interest Group which includes planning and delivering the annual SHARE conference on sustainability in healthcare.

I am a collaborator on the The Fit for Children and Young People (Fit4CYP) project to determine how pre-registration educational programmes influence the readiness for practice of newly qualified children’s nurses.
