I have experience in leading and managing curriculum delivery in a range of educational environments. I specialise in the curriculum development of professional and practice related programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. My experience in designing innovative and successful programmes spans a wide range of subject areas and has involved the support and mentorship of many others. During my career I have completed many strategic projects and bespoke training initiatives involving partnership work with NHS Trusts and other Further/Higher Education Institutions.
When working in the School of Nursing and Midwifery my specialist disciplinary areas are public health, leadership and management, and education. These reflect my background as a manager in the education and health fields and as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse practitioner.
My current research is in the area of public health. I am exploring the idea of contact with nature to enhance health, particularly the diffusion of this idea in the research literature, policy and public health practice.
