place Bedford Park

I am an Associate Lecturer in a balanced teaching and research position at Flinders University. I hold two first class degrees (Bachelor of Nursing Honours, 2006, University of Liverpool & LLB, 2011, University College London) and have over 12 years of practice – delivering care to patients, clinical research, and education. My clinical practice has been across multiple large urban teaching hospitals (Royal Free Hospital London, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and Newcastle Upon Tyne Teaching Hospitals) and focused on liver transplant, HIV and infectious diseases, emergency care and ad hoc work casual work.

Key responsibilities


Teaching across all years of the Bachelor of Nursing programme, I deliver classroom-based tutorials, clinical simulation sessions and online synchronous teaching.

I apply innovative and creative methods of teaching and assessment and am studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Medical and Health Education (University of Manchester). I am a member of the Bachelor of Nursing Redesign core group and leader of a subgroup optimising student and staff experiences. Our new curriculum will start in 2023.

Beyond direct teaching, I contribute within the College of Nursing and Health Sciences through membership and activity on the Reconciliation Action Group and the Welcome and Onboarding Committee.


I am proud to be an active member of the Caring Futures Institute.

My main interest is valuing relationship based fundamental care and teaching and promoting integration of care (addressing physical, psychosocial and relational needs simultaneously). This is reflected in my research outputs.

My research is expanding to address contemporaneous issues such as evaluating the transition to online learning and the use of digital technologies in the inpatient setting during infectious disease outbreaks.

My research profile


I have a strong interest in ethics, which led me to complete law degree and gain experience in legal practice. I bring this knowledge into teaching nursing students law and ethics and into my research practice.

Since 2019 I have been a member of the Southern Adelaide Clinical Human Research Ethics Committee reviewing research ethics applications. In addition, I am working with the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network on an ongoing project promoting student placements in the office for research, promoting good clinical practice, research ethics and research governance.
