Overview

I am a lecturer within the children and young people’s (CYP) nursing team. I have a range of  clinical experience in adult and CYP nursing, gained both within the UK and overseas. This includes, accident and emergency, radiology, medical and surgical nursing, specialised adolescent health care and as a consultant nurse (Cystic Fibrosis).

My main area of interest is young people’s health. My Doctoral Thesis examined the experiences of young people with cystic fibrosis and their families in Wales, related to their transition from child to adult health care services.

Biography

Having trained in Wales in the 1970s at East Glamorgan Hospital as a ‘State Registered Nurse’ I worked in a range of areas within the hospital post qualification.

I moved to Australia in 1986 and returned to study in 1994. This is where I developed my passion for adolescent health.

Returning to Wales, I have worked at Cardiff University since 2004.  I have held a number of various additional roles within the School, including Admissions Tutor and Programme Manager.
