I studied Diagnostic Radiography at the University of Hertfordshire, after graduating in 2010 I took up a post as a rotational radiographer at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. In 2016, I moved to Essex and took up a post as a senior radiographer, it was here my interest in radiography education and teaching developed. I worked alongside the department’s practice educator to deliver tutorials and support students from the University of Suffolk in their clinical practice. In 2020, I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice. Following the completion of this course, I continued to pursue my interest in instructing and supporting student radiographers. I enjoy working with students and find teaching them to be very rewarding.

I joined the University of Bradford as a clinical teacher in August 2021. My role as a clinical teacher involves teaching and supporting students in their learning of general healthcare and radiography-specific clinical skills, for the first-year students this is done through simulated practice, using the X-ray, PACs, and VR suites on campus. My role also involves liaising with the clinical staff at our placement sites and supporting them in supporting the students learning and assessment while on placement.
