I have worked as a Paramedic with the Ambulance Service since 2006, and have always sought opportunities to engage in the education of tomorrow's paramedics. In 2012 I started a Master of Clinical Education and started working in the tertiary education sector, and soon began working with the Clinical Education course staff (now part of the Prodesux Centre). While continuing my clinical work, I completed formal coursework qualifications and a PhD in Health Professional Education, giving me insight into the nexus of concurrent clinical practice, teaching, and research.
