Elizabeth qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1987 studying at University College Hospital London, where she was employed as a Sister on a medical ward until eventually moving into Primary Care in 1994.

With a special interest in Women's Health, Family Planning, Diabetes and Coronary Heart Disease, Elizabeth worked as a practice nurse for 13 years. Having attained a first class Advanced Nurse Practitioner BSc (Hons) degree and a Non-Medical Prescribing Qualification from London South Bank University in 2007, she continued to work in General Practice as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Elizabeth joined LSBU as a senior lecturer in 2010 and gained a PGCert in Practice Education in 2013, maintaining her clinical practice part-time in a busy Walk in Centre. Her interests are patient advocacy and more recently, dementia care. Elizabeth is currently studying for a Professional Doctorate at London South Bank University.

Elizabeth is the Module Coordinator for 'Advanced Assessment Skills for Clinical Practice'. Her enthusiasm and passion for her subject is very motivating and students enjoy this module because of their ability to apply learned theory and skills to their practice. She coordinates the 'Skills work Shop' and 'Communication Skills' session run for the Advanced Nurse Practitioner students in the summer, as well as coordinating orientation sessions for new students coming to study at LSBU.

Elizabeth also supports the Non-Medical Prescribing team for examinations and OSCEs. She is additionally a mentor for students on the Advanced Nurse Practitioner programme and visits student ANPs in their workplace supporting students in their academic studies and clinical practice.

As Elizabeth continues to work clinically she enjoys sharing her experiences with students to make her teaching more meaningful.
