I have been a registered nurse since April 1995.  I commenced my initial nurse education in 1992 at Keele University where I successfully completed my Diploma in Higher Education, Nursing (Adult branch).  In 1999 in embarked on my undergraduate degree in Applied Nursing at what was then NEWI.  I graduated in 2001 with my BSc (hons) in Applied Nursing with a specialist practice certificate.  I am currently studying for my Masters in Learning and Technology here at Wrexham Glyndwr University. 

My working life as a nurse commenced in 1992 at the North Staffordshire Hospital NHS Trust where I completed my nurse education.  I secured a job as a qualified nurse in 1995 at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital where I worked on the medical admissions ward.  I moved on from there in January 1997 to commence work as a staff nurse at Glan Clwyd Hospital on the Renal Unit.  I became specialised in renal nursing and specifically haemodialysis.  I left the Renal Unit in October 2003 to start my position here in the Nursing team.


In my down time I like to spend time taking my daughter out and about and I also enjoy running and going to the gym.
