I have joined University of Portsmouth with experience from my past academic and clinical posts predominantly in Critical Care. I started my academic career in 2002 in the Department of Applied Biological Science at City University London, in a collaborative shared post with Barts and Royal London NHS Trust - Medicines Safety Team, Pharmacy Department with LSOP collaboration. Since this time I have held a Senior Lecturer post at Anglia Ruskin University and Practice Educator role at UCLH, London. I have punctuated my career with clinical/management roles in the NHS and academic posts supporting mainly anatomy/physiology and pharmacology provision in innovative ways to help students link theory and practice together. My ICU practice has included specialist Cardiac and Trauma intensive care predominantly in London (Barts, UCLH - Queens Square) and more recently in Hampshire.

Teaching Responsibilities

I currently support the Nursing Assessment Skills unit in the BA Nursing programme, alongside teaching specific subjects such as anatomy and physiology, personal tutor and Senior Lecturer role responsibilities.


My interests are in the field of critical and intensive care and the impact on patient health post ICU, both physical and psychological alongside the resilience capacity of staff working in such environments.

I am also passionate about the provision of quality learning experiences for students that support and empower students’ to provide holistic and effective nursing care in whichever setting they choose to practice once qualified.

I am also interested in how teaching styles and modes impact on students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and how students are supported through alternative teaching approaches, using technology and face to face means, to help support the learning process and the outcome of student achievement.
