Pronouns she/her.

I work in the Social Work Team at BU and teach on several units including Learning from the Lived Experience and Social Justice.

I have been a qualified social worker since 2011, graduating from Bournemouth University. I worked for around 10 years in statutory drug and alcohol social work and latterly within the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Team, prior to coming to BU.

I currently work part time at BU and also work part time as an Independent Social Worker. I work completing Best Interests Assessments for people who have been deprived of their liberty and I am also an independent Practice Educator supporting social work students out on placement.

To find out more about my independent work you can see my website https://www.yournatureuk.com.

My areas of interest are around social work being about social justice and human rights and how this links with climate justice. I am interested in the intersectionality of social work and climate issues and how we can address this on micro and macro levels...
