Contact Details


From 2007 I have fulfilled a variety of roles within multiple healthcare settings and became a HCPC registered paramedic through completion of a FdSc Paramedic Science with the University of Worcester. I have since worked as an operational paramedic providing urgent and emergency care to the public and have continued studying with the University of Worcester.

I have experience mentoring paramedic students during their ambulance-based placements, helping and supporting them to achieve the competencies and standards required for the delivery of quality care.

In 2019 I began teaching regularly as an Associate Lecturer with the BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science team, whilst continuing to practice as an operational paramedic and mentor. I now teach full-time on the BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science program.
