I have worked as a lecturer at Queen Margaret since 1997 teaching mainly on the Nursing undergraduate degree programme on a wide variety of modules, but also MSc programmes. I also work at the Borders General Hospital as a Paediatric Endocrine Specialist Nurse. It is important to me to continue to practice as a nurse whilst working as a nurse lecturer. I have a background in both paediatric and general nursing including neonatal care, neurology, diabetic care and endocrinology.
