I am a mental health Nurse and completed my training at the University of Nottingham in 2018. After working in medium secure services for people with learning disabilities, I then moved to acute mental health care.
I first joined the Heath Sciences team as a PHL in 2019, before becoming a Teaching Associate in 2020. As a Teaching Associate, I teach on a range of modules with topics including clinical skills, working with challenging behaviour and health inequalities.
I have enjoyed been involved in the University's 2021 LGBT+ History Month celebrations programme board as well as the co-coordinating the events within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences for LGBT+ History Month
My areas of expertise and experience lie primarily in LGBTQ+ healthcare, in particular the specific health needs of transgender people. I am interested by the effects of health inequalities and in identifying ways to minimise these through nursing care. I also have significant experience in managing challenging behaviour effectively through my clinical work and enjoy supporting students to build effective communication for deescalation
