I joined the University of Salford in 1993 as a Lecturer / Practitioner of Midwifery. I became a full time lecturer in October 2011. I have spent 29 years in midwifery practice, team management and education. I have several years experience supporting students in practice placement. I also have experience in Safeguarding and managed the transfer of care for identified vulnerable women from Salford in the recent reconfiguration of maternity services.


My academic interests focus on midwifery practice, and I continue to teach at every level on undergraduate and taught postgraduate midwifery and leadership programmes. I supervise postgraduate students. I enjoy high and low tech skills simulation.

Research Interests

My professional background is in midwifery care and practice. The focus for my research interest is on preceptorship in midwifery and this was the subject of my Masters dissertation. I am also keen to investigate the use of skills simulation within the midwifery curriculum here at Salford.
