Personal profile


I am Registered Nurse and Nurse Teacher with extensive clinical experience within Accident and Emergency as a Staff Nurse, Charge Nurse and Emergency Nurse Practitioner in minor injuries.  I joined the University of the West of Scotland as a Lecturer (Adult Health) in 2015 following holding posts at Queen Margaret University as an Assistant Lecturer and as a Practice Education Facilitator for Greater Glasgow and Clyde Acute Services Division.  I now teach predominantly into Part 2 of the pre-registration programme based at Paisley campus, where I am the Part 2 lead.  

Area of academic expertise - outline

My MSc research utilised triangulation of methods of data collection to explore the prevalence and experiences of Secondary Traumatic Stress among Emergency Nurses in the West of Scotland.  Since joining the University I have been involved in research utilising emotional touchpoints to capture the student experience.  I also have an interest in clinical skills and the use of simulation.  

Desired research direction

It is my hope to commence PhD level study this year, building on my previous research experience.
