Personal profile


I joined the University in February 2021 as a Lecturer in Adult Nursing. I am currently the Programme Lead for Specialist Practice in District Nursing (SPDN) Apprenticeship and teach across pre-registration modules.

My teaching and research interests include community nursing, the education and development of SPDN's and improving staff safety and wellbeing, especially relevant to lone working.

I qualified in 2009 as an RGN, working in Gateshead as a community nurse. I then joined Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals (NUTH) in 2013 to undertake the District Nursing Specialist Practitioner Qualification (DNSPQ). I then qualified as a Specialist Practice Teacher/Senior Charge Nurse in 2016, working in NUTH District Nursing Services before joining Northumbria on secondment in 2018.

I returned to frontline clinical practice in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic as a Specialist Practice Teacher. I later returned to the University in a substantive post in February 2021.
