Biography

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1987 having completed my training at Staincliffe General Hospital (now Dewsbury & District Hospital).  Shortly after qualifying I got a post as a Staff Nurse on the newly opened Intensive Care Unit at Dewsbury & District Hospital.  By 1993, I was working as a Charge Nurse on the ICU/CCU and began working Part Time as a Resuscitation Officer, sharing the responsibilities with a colleague.  I continued in these two roles until 1999 when I took on the Resuscitation Officer role full time.  I remained in this post until August 2005 when I left to take up my current role with the University.

I am married with a son and a daughter, both 'grown up' now.  I play the guitar and lead the worship team at my local church.  I enjoy watching most sports, especially football and have been a supporter of Huddersfield Town since my dad first took me to a game in 1974 – commitment!
