I have extensive experience as an adult, paediatric and public health nurse and hold all three nursing qualifications. My area of interest is family and child health from pregnancy to five years of age. I have a wealth of experience in ealry intervention practice . I also have a Master's degree in childhood studies and early years; my dissertation study focused on infant mental health and the importantance of early life experiences on the developing brain. I am in my first year of a PhD project looking at early intervention in the prevention of childhood obesity. This assimilates my professional and academic experience to further develop understanding of a major public health concern, with the expectation it will inform practice.
