Profile summary

I am an NMC registered midwife and a senior lecturer within the midwifery team.  I gained my BSc midwifery degree at Canterbury Christ Church University and spent 10 years in clinical practice working for a local hospital Trust across a range of maternity settings.  Before making the move in to higher education, I worked as a community midwife and was a keen promoter of homebirth.  As part of my lecturer role, I work closely with the clinical areas to ensure that students are supported whilst out in practice and I take an active role in promoting positive mentorship.

Since joinging the university, I have successfully studied for my PGCLT (HE) which has enabled me to be accredited on the NMC register as both a clinician and midwifery educator.  I am also a member of the Higher Education Academy and am interested in developing my professional knowledge and skills in education; particularly in the use of creative methods for learning and teaching.  I uphold my responsibilities as a personal tutor and aim to provide supportive, positive and nurturing pastoral care to my personal students.  I value highly the art of reflection and encourage students to develop this skill throughout their own professional journey.  I recently won a Golden Apple Award.       

I am a keen promoter of facilitating normalitlty in childbirth and have an interest in infant feeding. I also co-lead the 'Public Health and the Challenges for Midwives' module and am especially interested in body image and the effects on health.  I have recently been involved in the validation of a new BSc Midwifery programme and have taken on the role of Programme Director for this.
