I was awarded a Bachelor Degree in Nursing Studies (BNS) at University College Dublin (1993). a Masters Degree in Education
at University College Cork (1996), and a PhD Degree at the University of Manchester, UK (2004). Prior to pursuing an academic
career, I practiced clinical nursing in Ireland and in the UK, specialising in children's nursing.
I was appointed as Associate Professor at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University College Cork in 2008. I am actively involved in teaching and research with a special interest in children's nursing and health care and chronic illness management. In 2009, I spent a period of 6 months at Yale School of Nursing, New Haven CT, working with Professor Margaret Grey on research into childhood diabetes. I supervise MSc and PhD research students.
