Current positions

Lecturer in Podiatry


I worked within the NHS for 12 years before moving into full time academia with the University of Salford in 2005. I worked as a Specialist Podiatrist within Rheumatology at Wrightington Hospital, Lancs and have carried on working within this specialist area as a focus for my own research gaining a Masters in Professional Development (with a primary focus in rheumatology) in 2007.  I am currently completing a PhD by Published Works with a focus on developing foot health education for people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Currently I work as a part-time lecturer in Podiatry in the Directorate of Prosthetics & Orthotics and Podiatry, lecturing on the undergraduate programme and post-graduate PG cert in Lower Limb Health, Disease and Rehabilitation, in addition to working in private practice.


Undergraduate - I am a key member of the Level 4 and Level 6 teaching teams teaching clinical assessment and diagnostic skills at both levels in the clinical and classroom environment. In addition I deliver keynotes lectures in the subject areas of Vascular Assessment/Management, Patient Education and Private Practice within the Level 6 modules of Diagnosis and Management 1 and Management and Leadership in Clinical Practice 1.

Postgraduate – for the PG Cert in Lower Limb Health, Disease and Rehabilitation I am Module Leader for the module: Patient Focused Approach to Lower Limb Assessment and a member of the module team for the module: Management of the Lower Limb in Health Disease and Rehabilitation.  As part of this programme (and in addition to the administrative role as Module Leader) I provide keynote lectures in Patient Education and Woundcare, run Masterclass days, provide academic support and formative feedback, together with summative assessment of the module cohort.
