​My specialist clinical background rounds up to over 15 years working in haematological malignancies, firstly as a Clinical Research Nurse and then as a Clinical Nurse Specialist, covering: Multiple Myeloma, Acute and Chronic leukaemias.

I completed my MSc in Advanced Nursing– Cancer from King’s College in 2013. I am currently studying towards an MSc Clinical and Professional Education at UCL. I have been involved in multiple haematology education and advisory boards, to advance positive patient experience and nurse education. I am a former board member for London Cancer Pathway for Haematological Malignancies and London Cancer Nursing Expert Reference Group.

My association with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Royal Marsden School began in 2002 when I completed the rotation programme and was awarded a Diploma in Cancer Nursing. After 14 years of working for The Royal Free and University College Hospital London I returned to join the School in 2018 as a Lecturer Practitioner. 

The most rewarding part of the job for me is bringing my clinical experience and expertise to the classroom. My main focus is to enhance positive learner experience, facilitate knowledge building and support academic development to advance positive patient care and experience.
