Biography

I am a lecturer in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery, EHS Faculty, University of Limerick, since 2007. During this time I was appointed as Course Director for International studies and was instrumental in developing and leading on a number of internationalisation initiatives within the department, completing my tenure in 2017. Since November 2021, I have been appointed as Course Director for the BSc Nursing Studies and the MSc Nursing studies programmes. Prior to this, I was a senior lecturer in nursing at Middlesex University, United Kingdom. My extensive clinical, managerial and educator experiences both in Ireland and in the United Kingdom has provided me with significant experience and expertise to facilitate student and self-learning, through teaching, supervision, administration, curriculum development and research. I was nominated as a Teaching Hero as part of the 2020 student-led Teaching Hero awards by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in association with the Union of Students in Ireland. My particular research interests and scholarly activity are in the areas of cultural and ethnic diversity in healthcare, cultural competence development, internationalisation of curriculum, intercultural learning and migrant health.

Research Interests

Research interests include curriculum development, exploring initiatives that encourage student learning, interprofessional education, intercultural learning, cultural competence development and migrant health.
