I joined the EMERGE team in 2015 having previously has a range of experience wearing different hats ranging from emergency nurse, ENP, research nurse, trial co-ordinator, trial monitor and trial manager (no I am not 100 years old). This opportunity enabled me to finally put my emergency nursing and research background together.

My emergency department experience began in Glasgow and I went on to work in London and Australia. In 2010, I began my research career as a research nurse in the commercial world working in Phase I-IV and experimental clinical research in a variety of therapeutic areas.

At the moment I am studying for the Masters in Public Health, part-time at Edinburgh University. Although hard work, it is very interesting and relevant to my role in EMERGE and my future career.
