I joined the University of Worcester full time in 2016 taking on the role of lecturer practitioner for the foundation degree Paramedic Science course. I have worked in paramedic education for the last 3 years.

I commenced my career in 1998 with West Midlands Ambulance Service progressing to paramedic status in 2002. I have enjoyed many roles throughout the years, including community paramedic on the rapid response vehicle and named mentor for direct entry and technician to paramedic students, from a wide range of universities.

I am passionate about the Paramedic profession and am proud to be involved in Paramedic education. I have a special interest in the development of technology to enhance learning and my area of research is how the effective use of digital solutions can improve the students’ university experience and benefit their studies.
