I qualified as a Registered Nurse (part one) in 1993 and spent several years working on adult and neonatal intensive care units. After completing a BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practitioner-Public Health in 2001, I worked as a qualified health visitor for a period of two and a half years gaining extensive knowledge and experience of working within communities and with services relevant to social welfare and wellbeing.

Between 2005-2007 I was employed as a Named Nurse for Safeguarding Children and Young People, within the Acute and Primary Care Trusts.

In 2007 I moved into Higher Education, I am currently working as a Senior Lecture on BSc Health and Community Studies. In addition I work across the division of Public Health and Wellbeing and teach postgraduate students in relation to Safeguarding Children and Young People.

I have completed the MSc Health Professional Education in 2010.
