Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

I qualified as a registered nurse in 1998 with a Bachelor of Nursing degree. The majority of my clinical experience has been in critical care initially as a junior, then senior staff nurse, and laterally as a practice educator. I joined the University of the West of Scotland in 2009 and am currently Programme Lead for the BSc (Honours) Adult Nursing programme.

From 2015-2019 I was seconded to facilitate the My Home Life Scotland Leadership Support and Community Development programme and was involved in research activities in order to develop and evaluate the impact of this programme.

I have a particular interest in participatory approaches to research, specifically Appreciative Inquiry. I also have experience with other methodologies including including mixed methods and realist evaluation.

I recently completed my PhD studies. The title of my thesis was 'Exploring and supporting the continued growth of positive learning environments in care homes for everyone: An Appreciative Inquiry.
