After qualifying in Diagnostic Radiography I initially worked as a rotational radiographer in London before returning to Staffordshire and specialising in Medical Ultrasound.  Before leaving full time Clinical Practice I progressed to lead the Ultrasound Service at University Hospital of North Midlands.

During my time in Clinical Practice I studied at Keele University to specialise in Early Pregnancy Ultrasound gaining my MPhil qualification. Although I was a Clinical Sonographer, my heart was always in teaching and I mentored ultrasound students and Medical Registrars at several Universities including Birmingham City, Lancaster, Liverpool and Salford. Following my passion for teaching I then took on the full time Role as Programme Leader (MSc Medical Ultrasound) and Post Graduate lead at the University of Derby.

Wishing to combine Education and Clinical practice, I then worked as a Clinical Applications Specialist in the Medical Devices Industry before returning to teaching on the BSc Diagnostic Radiography at Keele University. In addition I still undertake Clinical sessions at local hospitals.


As a lecturer at Keele, Donna teaches on Undergraduate programmes primarily in the field of Radiography and Anatomy within the Foundation Degree and BSc Diagnostic Radiography Programme. Donna has previously worked as Programme Leader in Post Graduate Medical Ultrasound at another Higher Education Institution in the UK.

Having enjoyed a diverse career spanning 35 years in Imaging, Education, Medical Devices and Management, Donna is particularly interested in introducing Student Radiographers to career options post qualification.
