Biography

Donna is an NMC registered midwife and teacher, and an Advance HE Fellow. 

Following graduation from the University of Bradford in 2012, she has worked clinically as a rotational midwife in Bradford, primarily in local community settings providing antenatal, postnatal, and intrapartum care in the home. She also has experience of intrapartum care in both consultant-led and midwife-led hospital birth settings.

Prior to moving to the University of Bradford as an Assistant Professor in Midwifery in August 2022, Donna was based at another university within the region as a Lecturer in Midwifery - during this role she taught and supported teaching on a wide variety of profession specific and interprofessional modules.

Prior to this, Donna was seconded to lead a 12 month Health Education England Project for the Yorkshire and Humber Region examining barriers and opportunities for midwifery clinical placement expansion.

Donna has teaching experience in a wide range of settings having trained as a secondary school teacher (11-18) teaching GCSE and A-Level Biology and KS4/5 Health and Social Care. She has also taught and provided support to 1st and 4th year Medical Students, and Midwifery Students within clinical settings in a local hospital trust in her previous role as a clinical educator.

During her previous school- and clinical-teaching roles she completed a PGCERT in Health Professional Education and gained NMC teacher status, fellowship of Advance HE, and completed a PGCE in Secondary Education gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Donna has a special interest in Digital Education, particularly in the use of Digital Technologies to support teaching, learning, and assessment and digital exclusion. She is currently undertaking a MA in Digital Education.
