I graduated as an occupational therapist from Liverpool in the UK in 1991. Since then I have worked in Mental Health, Palliative Care and since 2003 in acdemia. I am interested in online learning and the power of online social networking for personal and professional development.

Currently I am Professional Lead for the Directorate and Co-Programme Leader (Admissions) for the online MSc in Advanced Occupational Therapy. I teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level and supervise MSc Dissertation students.
