I have been involved in Fertility Nursing since 1993 and chaired of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Midwifery & Fertility Nurses Forum from 2008-2011. I currently hold the position of Nurse Consultant, Fertility Preservation (NHS Grampian), member of the European Society of Human Reproduction & Embryology (ESHRE) Nurses & Midwives Certification Committee and Editorial Board (Human Fertility) in addition to peer reviewer for several fertility and oncology related journals. Overall, I have a specialist interest in exploring reproductive potential and decision-making within a variety of settings – including oncology – contributing to the RCN clinical professional resource ‘Fertility Preservation’ (2017). I have designed analysed and published numerous applied qualitative and clinical studies in reproductive health care, written several book chapters, and continue to support the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen in providing teaching sessions in Fertility and Reproduction for 3rd Year Midwifery Students.
