Experience in industry

Prior to joining the University, I worked with young parents and their families in the delivery of the Family Nurse Partnership programme. This was an evidence-based intensive home visiting programme for young parents, which aimed to promote a healthy pregnancy, improve child health, development, and readiness to learn at school and support young people to reach goals and aspirations. I also have extensive experience working within interprofessional teams to safeguard vulnerable children and young people.
