I am a Registered Nurse with a background in Acute Respiratory Medicine and Clinical Skills. I have also worked as a Practice Educator, ensuring that qualified staff and student nurses were practice-ready and capable of providing excellent care to patients. As Acting Head of Nursing for Education, my leadership and management focus were on the department's strategies, ensuring alignment with the NHS strategic plans.
In 2011, I left the NHS to work as a Senior Lecturer in the Adult Nursing department at London South Bank University. Since being part of the LSBU family, I have held a variety of substantive positions such as Cohort Leader, Course Director, and Interim Deputy Head of Division, where I provided strong leadership by setting high standards, leading by example, and ensuring appropriate support for academics at all stages of their career. This also included supervising colleagues within my own and other departments to attain their Senior Fellowship. I am a member of the Appeals panel and also the conciliator for the adult nursing department. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the Lead Link Lecturer at Barts Health. I also served as a judge for the National Nursing Times students' awards for two consecutive years. I am an academic with a strong interest in pre- and post-registration teaching in areas such as Care of the Deteriorating Patient, Acute and Complex Care, Clinical Skills, and Preparation for Practice.
I am currently undertaking my Professional Doctorate in Education. My research interest is in student nurses’ education specifically how theory is connected to practice. My preliminary research findings were presented at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) International Nursing Conference in October 2021 (China). I also participated in a round table discussion on Reflection on qualitative data collection during the COVID-19 pandemic: a student’s experience, at the SIGMA Nursing International Congress in July 2022 (Edinburgh).
