Biography

I have  been a full time educator at UCLMS  since May 1999. Prior to taking up this educational role I was a nurse for 9 years specialising in Intensive Care Nursing.  

After my masters research concluded that medical students did not feel like they belonged in the hospital, nor did many of the staff treat them as part of the team I noticed how the students' mental health was often compromised. 


I am exploring this phenomenon within the Educational Doctoral programme at the IOE. My research focus is the mental health and well-being of medical students. In particular the impact the academic environment has on the student. 

Outside of work I spend lots of time with my dog, Milligan and my two horses; Cooper and Betty.
  
Family, friends, the theatre (pre-covid) and good food are also a big part of my life. 

Research Summary
My doctoral research interest is the mental health and well-being of medical students. In particular the impact the academic environment has on the student. 


My Masters research focused on the 'belongingness' of medical students in the clinical environment.
