Biography

I graduated with an MPharm degree in Pharmacy from Aston University in 2003, a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy with Medicines Management from De Montfort University in 2011, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education from Keele University in 2013.  I have undertaken many roles in community pharmacy including Store Manager, Pharmacist In Charge, Divisional Care Services Pharmacist, and eLearning designer amongst others.

I joined the School of Pharmacy and Bioengineering in 2010 as a Teacher Practitioner on secondment from Boots UK. I joined Keele full time in 2015 as a Teaching Fellow and translated to a Lecturer (Education and Scholarship) in August 2019. In May 2020, I was promoted to Senior Lecturer. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and regularly mentor and review applications for Fellowship of the HEA via Keele’s CPD route.

 

I am registered pharmacist with a passion for excellence in the delivery of pre-foundation (pre-registration) and foundation pharmacy education and recruitment. I have worked with Health Education England to develop pre-registration recruitment materials and ensure equality and diversity in the interview and testing process. 

I am currently the local lead for Shropshire and Staffordshire area of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and Chair of the UK Clinical Pharmacy Association’s Education and Development committee. I co-authored A Practical Guide to Medicines Management, with fellow Keele academic Dr. Rebecca Venables, published in 2018.

 

Most recently in 2020, I became one of only three KIITE Fellows for curriculum development, where I am looking forward to working further with academics and professional staff across the university and beyond. I am particularly interested in wellbeing and resilience in the curriculum as well as employability skills.
