I joined the University in 2000 from the Anaesthetic Department at Newcastle General Hospital and took up my first role as Project Secretary in the then Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, which later became the School of Population and Health Sciences and then again the Institute of Health and Society.  My first role was based in Public Health working on a number of projects i.e. Diabetes, Welfare Rights and Smoking in the Bangladeshi and Pakistani Population.

In 2007 I moved into the Decision Making group where I was an Administrator on a five year NIHR funded programme of work on Stroke (DASH).

In 2012 an opportunity arose which allowed me to move back to Public Health in the role of Personal Assistant for Professor Martin White, Professor Falko Sniethotta, Dr Suzanne Moffatt and Dr Vera Araujo-Soares as well as the Public Health Group and Administrator to the newly formed School for Public Health Research, I also assisted in the administration of an FP7 grant entitled RES CAP MED which brings together many partners based in the Middle East, Europe and Ireland.

From 2012 until 2015 I was the Administrator for the NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR) and Fuse (which incorporates Durham, Sunderland, Teesside and Sunderland University). 

I currently administer the NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR)  I am also the administrator for the newly awarded NIHR Global Health Award DePEC which brings together partners from Malaysia, Tanzania, India, Kings College London and The Northumbria Healthcare Trust to look at Dementia Prevention and Enhanced Care
