While pursuing my MPhil at the University of the West Indies, I worked as a teaching assistant and part-time lecturer to Biology and Nursing undergraduates. During my PhD at the University of Stirling, I delivered lectures to Nursing undergraduates on the cardiovascular and digestive systems, and on self-care and self-management. During this time, I also contributed to the MSc in Advance Practice. As a result of these teaching and learning activities, I was recognised as an Associate Fellow by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) in 2016.
