I am pharmacist, registered in 1992 with extensive experience of community pharmacy, including pharmacy ownership, and the provision of pharmacy services within secure environments.
My career in education commenced in 2005, and has included working with the pharmaceutical industry, developing pharmacy support staff through work-based learning and assessment and training nurses, carers and other healthcare professionals in medicines administration and basic life support.
I joined De Montfort University as a Senior Lecturer in 2016, having supported the practice teams as a visiting lecturer since 2010, and I was promoted to Associate Professor in 2019, and now lead the postgraduate pharmacy practice team.
I am committed to promoting extended pharmacist roles and multidisciplinary team working, and I am interested in quality assurance and pedagogy within health education.
Outside of the world of pharmacy I have spend time working as a community first responder with East Midlands Ambulance Service and I have been involved in the role out of pitch-side first aid for the Rugby Football Union.
