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. I work as a UK Resuscitation Council Instructor in Advanced Life Support and am also an instructor for acute illness recognition and treatment courses, working with multidisciplinary health care teams. I became an External Examiner at the University of Lincoln in 2017. In 2018 I became both a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Senior Lecturer within the School of Health Sciences. I now work as an Associate Professor within the School and perform the role of Teaching Director.
