I am the Deputy Dean (Education and Professional Practice) - the Faculty of Health and Social Science (FHSS). I qualified as a Nurse in 1986 and obtained my first Sisters post in Intensive Care and Coronary Care in 1989 in St Mary Hospital London. In 1998 I moved into academia. I have held many leadership and management positions in BU including Principal Academic, Nursing Framework Leader and Associate Dean Student Experience. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have a passion for the future generation of nurses and inter / multi-disciplinary working. I also vehemently believe in fairness, transparency and quality provision and seek to reflect these both with student and peers. My publications and research reflect my passions of nursing caring values, humanizing nursing care, compassion in caring and contra-power harassment.
