About me

I am a senior midwifery lecturer. After training as a nurse, I spent eight years in the Royal Navy, as part of the Queen Alexandra's Nursing service.  I worked in a range of acute areas. I left and undertook my midwifery training at UWE. In clinical practice, I supported and cared for women who experienced more complex pregnancies. I thoroughly enjoyed providing all round care for women and their families in this situation.  

I have been a lecturer at UWE for fourteen years. I am passionate about the student experience, and committed to ensuring that all UWE students have a high quality training, and emerge as dedicated professionals.

Area of expertise

I have a particular interest in learning disabilities. I completed my Masters in 2011. My research focused on the clinical learning experiences of midwifery students who have dyslexia. I have worked with a colleague to develop a portfolio of education to meet the Baby Friendly Breastfeeding Initiative (Stage One).

I have worked in collaboration with a neighbouring Trust to introduce Obstetric emergency simulation between medical students and midwifery students. This was awarded joint second prize at the British Journal of Midwifery Awards (2013).  

In 2017, I was successfully appointed to join the Nigerian twinnning project, run by Women 4 Health and Save the Children. Having spent one year working on a collaborative project with a midwife lecturer form Nigeria, I went to Nigeria in June 2018 to present the recipricocal project. This was a shared collaboration, with the intention of supporting and enhancing U.K. and Nigerian  Midwifery education. 


Within the nursing and Midwifery Dept, I lead on sustainability, and I am currently involved in a research project in relation to interdisciplinary sustainability.  


I have also worked closely with service users to provide bereavement education.
