I am a Registered social worker with practice experience as a social worker, Senior Practitioner, HIV and AIDS Coordinator, Team Manager and a professional post in Learning and Development before coming to Salford University in 2013.

My social work practice was mainly with people with a physical disability, chronic health problems, acquired brain injury and terminal illness.

I am an experienced Practice Educator now undertaking the role of Off Site Practice Educator.

In February 2016 I became a Trustee of a local charity supporting people with a severe Learning Disability and complex needs.


I deliver teaching to qualified social workers working in partner organisations who want to become Practice Educators assessing social work students on placement.

I also deliver teaching course to people who are going to be On Site Supervisors for social work students on placement.

I deliver a range of CPD opportunities to Practice Educators to support their continuing development and maintain currency according to national standards.
