I have 18 years of experience in a range of specialist clinical areas in general nursing, public health and midwifery. I continue to work in practice to ensure that theory taught is sound, reflective of current practice, and draws from valuable practice experiences to further enrich delivery. I am a link academic assessor for one of the main hospitals in suburban London.
I work collaboratively with practice assessors and significant stakeholders to promote excellent clinical experiences for students in practice. I have special interests in women and children’s health and the factors that create, enhance and enrich students' experiences and lower attrition rates. I have been involved in experts’ conversations in parliament on the imperativeness and impact of early years on child development.
I am a member of the Nursing and midwifery council, Association of Radical Midwives and a steward representative for the Royal College of Nursing.
Research undertaken includes the role of Montessori Method of Education in early childhood development. I developed a safe and efficient Home Birth Equipment travel system as part of a quality assurance and control system for one of the main maternity units in London. I have further contributed to exploratory research in practice through the sharing of case studies in practice to inform service delivery.
