I am currently employed as a member of the Senior Executive Team in the School of Health at a North East University and I have worked in Higher Education for twenty years in various roles. I am a registered nurse and prior to my appointment at the University I had a professional career in Nursing where I developed by knowledge and skills working in critical care areas including intensive care, coronary care and accident and emergency.
It was working closely alongside various ambulance staff throughout my nursing career which gave me a good insight into their roles and I am passionate about the development of education in higher education for everyone working within the Trust. I have worked locally and nationally to engage with education for ambulance staff, written and published material related to paramedic education and presented at national conferences. I am proud to be able to represent Universities on the Board of Governors.
