Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Nursing & Health Care School and have previously held the roles of Programme Director Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) and Head of Nursing & Health Care. I teach on a variety of coures at undergraduate and postgraduate level and supervise Honours, Masters and PhD students.  I also contribute to various School and College committees and to our transnational education programme in conjunction with the Singapore Institute of Technology: BSc Nursing (Honours). 

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1990 after studying at the Western College of Nursing in Glasgow.  I held various staff nurse posts in the Western Infirmary before taking the post of Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist at Inverclyde Royal Hospital. Following this, I held the post of Chemotherapy Clinical Educator at the Beatson Oncology Centre.  My first teaching post was as a Lecturer in Cancer and Palliative Care with Marie Curie Cancer Care.  I then spent three years working in Australia both clinically in the hospital setting and academically as a Lecturer at Edith Cowan University.  On return to the UK, I worked as a Care Home Education Facilitator then as Lecturer in Adult Health at the University of the West of Scotland. I started working at the University of Glasgow in September 2015. 

My clinical nursing career was mainly in cancer nursing and I have a particular interest in Breast Cancer Care.  I developed the first nurse-led Family History Breast Cancer Clinic to be held in a District General Hospital in Scotland.  My doctoral studies explored why women who carry BRCA mutations which confer a high risk of developing breast/ovarian cancer decide not to have risk reducing surgery. I also have a BA in Social Science, an MSc by Research (Med Sci), and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.  I am a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy, a peer-reviewer for the journals Cancer Nursing Practice and Nursing Standard.
