About the Teacher
I have worked as a Specialist Education Nurse in travel clinics, as well an in emergency departments. I have also worked as an adult education lecturer. I love writing and delivering clinical training programmes in immunisation, phlebotomy, travel health and basic life support. I have spoken at large travel health conferences and has enjoyed delivering training to nurses, pharmasists, doctors and healthcare support workers. When I’m not working or being a mum to two young children, I love to make blogs about health and education.
