I have worked in the NHS since 1982, originally as a registered general Nurse (RGN), registered sick children’s nurse (RSCN) and a community nurse practitioner. I am currently a clinical team team leader of an HIV community nursing team. I am trained in coaching and mentoring skills and have delivered these in a variety of NHS settings, as well as with individuals and groups in the community.
I have recently completed my masters in coaching and NLP and will be starting my PHD in April 2013 in coaching and supervsion.

- I was particularly proud to have worked in South Africa, as part of the CHIVA team (Children’s HIV association) in the township communities of Dundee. This wonderful organisation makes a real difference to the lives of children and their families, in an area that has no state support for those living with HIV
- I am proud and humbled to receive positive feedback from many of the patients I work alongside in the HIV field – it’s rewarding to know that you’re making a small difference to people’s lives
- I particularly enjoy working with a new generation of healthcare practitioners where I can combine my knowledge and skills with my love of training and teaching and love to see them enter into a profession that I’m proud to be part of
When I’m not working….
I am a keen collector of cookery books and love cooking and finding new recipies, particularly deserts. When I’m not in the kitchen, you’ll often find me at the theatre or enjoying live entertainment. I don’t mind what the show is – as long as its makes me laugh, think or cry!
Jacqui is a consummate professional. She is the most compassionate health care worker I have met, and I have met many ! I cannot recall meeting anybody with her energy and enthusiasm, which is infectious. She is a first class trainer with a huge palette of skills and experience to draw upon.
