Sheila’s nursing and midwifery career began when she trained as a nurse at The London Hospital, Whitechapel. Following qualification she became a staff nurse on a chest/vascular surgical ward before commencing children’s nursing at The Hospitals for Sick Children, Great Ormond St.

To fulfil a desire to become involved in development work overseas she trained as a midwife and after a short period worked with VSO (voluntary service overseas) as a midwifery clinical teacher in Sierra Leone – a fantastic period of her life.

Upon return to the UK she was employed as a staff midwife, a midwifery co-ordinator, a lecturer practitioner and since August 2017 a senior lecturer at LSBU. She is linked to Barking Havering and Redbridge University Trust and temporarily to Barts Health – Newham University Hospital.

Areas of teaching include all practice based midwifery skills and theory linked to mentorship, anthropology, sociology and psychology.
Sheila gained a Masters qualification in Medical Anthropology in 2007 and Senior Fellowship in 2016.

Sheila is currently the lead lecturer for student Elective Placements.
