About me

I am an experienced nursing lecturer, currently responsible for all clinical skills teaching for pre-registration nursing students at the University of Southampton. Additionally I am the lead for the Global and Public Health module for the undergraduate nursing programme.

My clinical background is as an adult nurse, health visitor and specialist safeguarding nurse including experience in a multiagency safeguarding team. My safeguarding experience includes that within Health Visiting, as well as working at Tier 4 of Children's Services (Child Protection/Child in Need), raising awareness of MET (missing, exploitation and trafficking) issues and working alongside children affected by MET.

I am passionate about public health and early intervention.
