I have been engaged in health professional education since leaving school at the age of eighteen.
My clinical education and career involved my successful appointment as an adult nurse, a registered midwife and qualified health visitor in a wide variety of environments and communities in the North West of England.
I decided to embark on a career in higher education on successful completion of both undergraduate and postgraduate study. In the past, I was employed as a senior lecturer, principal lecturer and Head of School at the University of Bolton.
My current role is Dean of Faculty (Health and Wellbeing) at the University of Bolton. The Faculty is diverse and includes early childhood studies, youth work and community development, allied health professional programmes, nursing, clinical and biomedical studies, sport science and dental technology. I also represent the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Quality Assurance visitor.
My research interests are varied, including innovation in education through effective leadership and collaboration. This was the title of my PhD awarded in 2018.
My main hobby is walking although I also enjoy reading, theatre and film.
