Diploma Nursing, BSc (Hons), PGCPD, MSc Education
I am a fully qualified registered Nurse who has worked within the NHS and Education sector for over 25 years. I began my career working as a health care assistant and after completing my nurse training I worked within cardiology. During this time I was a member of the Territorial Army and worked within the Queens Alexander Royal Army Medical Corps.
During my time working within the hospital setting I developed a passion for teaching, and found that I enjoyed supporting nursing students in their education. I then became a Senior Lecturer within University and specialised in simulation. Simulation is a teaching technique that uses mannequins and role play to teach a wide range of nursing skills within a controlled laboratory known as a skills lab. I was responsible for setting up skills labs within two Universities and embedded this practice within the nursing curriculum. I was fortunate enough to travel the world presenting my research on simulation and the positive effects it has on health care education. I was nominated for best lecturer and most innovative lecturer for 2 consecutive years 2015 & 2016 and have published my work.
After a fulfilling and dynamic career involving the NHS and Education I am now working as a personal assistant that combines Nursing with personal care offering clients a 'one stop service' that fully meets all your needs.
I am passionate about working with people to support their independent living in the comfort of their own home without costing the earth.
