I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (Adult Nursing) in 1981 and worked across a range of medical and critical care settings in acute hospital trusts, finally settling for a clinical career in cardiology. This clinical experience formed the basis for my teaching expertise and I have been teaching cardiology and critical care nursing since joining the University in 1993. In addition I have held a variety of management and leadership roles within the School including; Course Directorship, Team Leader and I am a current member of the Schools executive team. These management roles have triggered an interest in how organisations work and behave and I am currently undertaking an Executive Masters in Business Administration at Warwick University.
