I have been delivering training for thirty years in a wide variety of medical and first aid subjects.
Most recent I have become a First Response Emergency Care Trainer. I have been privileged to delivery course to many blue-chip companies but humble enough to also deliver to the smaller companies and in many places, locally, nationally and internationally. For a great number year, I also ran a successful life support team providing cover at many different diverse events across the country, from cage fighting to motor cross, triathlons to horse events.
I sold my previous company a few years ago for the easy life but I loved training so much that I freelanced for several companies providing training on their behalf.
Due to some of my ‘old’ loyal customers and popular demand my wife and I have decided to take a ‘bite out of the apple’ again so to speak and continue the training ourselves. I still to this day keep my hand in on event work. When ask by one of the voluntary aid society’s, of which I am a side-line member hence the slogan we don’t just teach, we practice what we teach.
I qualified as a Registered Nurse, 23 years ago and I have worked within various specialities including Acute Medicine, Endoscopy, Innovations of Care, Oncology, Haematology, Research and as a Bank Nurse Co-ordinator.
Following the completion of my ‘Teaching and Assessing’ Diploma Module, early on in my career, I have developed an extended role of teaching both qualified and student nurses and medical staff, on several subjects.
I qualified with my general nursing degree nearly 20 years ago and began my nursing career as a Critical Care Nurse at the Manchester Royal Infirmary based (MRI) based in ITU.
After the birth of my daughter i moved to North Wales where I began working as a Coronary Care Nurse. I also became part of the resuscitation team at the local hospital, following completing my Advanced Life Support.
I have experience working as a district nurse as part of the nurse bank team and within clinical research. I continue to work as a registered nurse within the hospital, mainly within acute medicine. I am also a holistic therapist providing reiki, reflexology and preparing aromatherapy blends that are individually tailored for my client’s needs. I am currently working on my diploma in acupressure and herbal medicine…. the best teachers recognise that we are all students and learning is a continuous curve!
