I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCE). I assessed in Practice with D32 and D33. I undertook mentorship training.
I was a Midwife for many years and a Registered Nurse until I moved into education

What kind of experience do you have?
I have twenty years experience of being a Senior University Lecturer; teaching on many varied courses in Health and Health and Social Care/Health Promotion/Public Health and also writing various health courses within the Higher Education arena.

I have taught pre and post registration courses in Nursing and Midwifery and was Course Leader for the Return to Practice for Nurses course for 5 years..

I have been an External Examiner for health courses at another University. I am very dedicated to study skills and helping students achieve their full potential.
I was a practicing midwife (and previously a nurse) for 12 years in all clinical areas so I understand the intrinsic academic skill of applying theory to clinical practice ,whatever health professional career is chosen.

I was a Senior University Lecturer until 2014 and am now enjoying helping students achieve their goals on a one to one basis.

Prior to going into teaching I began my career as a Nurse and later trained as a Midwife on moved across to midwifery where I practiced for 12 years. I was a Sister Midwife in all areas of midwifery before transferring into teaching and therefore I understand the application of academic knowledge to professional practice.

Do you have a personal message for students?
I believe that with motivation and dedication all students can fulfil their potential.
The feeling of achievement when you have worked hard and are successful is immense and very well deserved in this ever changing world of work where nothing is certain. It is important to keep moving forward, challenging yourself and being aware of the job market and how you can achieve the academic knowledge and qualifications to ensure some job security. I aim to help students reach their chosen goal and to move forward with happy fruitful lives.
