I completed hospital based nurse education programme at an Australian regional hospital in 1987. I came to the UK in 1989, concentrating on a career in cancer care, with an interest in chemotherapy. I completed a BSc (Hons) Cancer Care (Manchester/Royal Marsden), an MSc in eLearning (Edinburgh) and a Post Grad Certificate in Teaching & Learning (Surrey).

I joined the School of Health Sciences in 2010. I am currently deputy module lead for Year 2, Adult Nursing and teach across fields and years in the School of Health Sciences. I also help maintain and manage the Adult Nursing ePAD.
