Professional biography

My background is in mental health nursing, having worked in residential in-patient settings and as a Community Mental Health Nurse.  Most of my practice has been with people living with a severe form of mental disorder and their supporters and carers.  

I completed my MA in Education in 2007. As part of the programme I researched the role of the Programme Tutor in terms of obligations and rights.  

I am curreently studying for an EdD investigating nurse educator attitudes to teaching online
