Executive Dean, Faculty of Health and Social Care, Pro Vice Chancellor and Provost (Warrington)

After qualifying as a nurse and midwife I briefly worked as a midwife in Guernsey and held various posts as a nurse in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, predominantly in the area of critical and cardiac care.

My years in health and social care education have been spent in a range of roles including clinical teacher, lecturer, programme leader, principal lecturer and quality advisor at Edinburgh Napier University as well as my roles at Chester.

I was appointed as Executive Dean in August 2012, having previously held the positions of Associate Dean, Learning and Teaching, and Deputy Dean of the Faculty. I recently have been appointed to the role of a Pro Vice Chancellor of the University and the provost of Warrington, roles which will be complementary to my work in the Faculty as Dean.
