I am a Senior Lecturer in adult nursing studies and have been at Cardiff University 2003. I also hold the role of Director of Equality, Diversity Inclusion and Wellbeing within the School of Healthcare Sciences. Prior to commencing at Cardiff I spent 17 years in varied clinical practice settings across both mental health and adult fields of nursing. My specialist clinical background developed in the field of sexual health, mainly caring for individuals living with HIV. Current teaching activities span the academic disciplines of clinical science, health promotion and public health, men’s health, sexual and reproductive health, and equality, diversity and inclusion. My current scholarly activity is focussed on advancing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusivity in teaching and learning environments. I am an active member of a number of School committees and a member of the University LGBT+ Staff Equality Network ‘Enfys’.
