Research Interests (key words only)

Emotional intelligence, work and well being

Teaching and Supervisory Responsibilities

Victoria teaches on various undergraduate and postgraduate modules but primarily teaches on the Evidencing Professional Practice and Evidence Based Guideline Development modules these modules are both inter professional. 


I graduated as an Occupational Therapist in 2001 and predominately worked with service users with orthopaedic conditions but also took a great interest working with students on placement.

Whilst studying for my masters I successfully gained employment as a lecturer. I have been lecturing on the Occupational Therapy course since 2006. In this time I have had various roles including placement and ECE coordinator, first year tutor, admissions officer and lead a variety of modules.

I now work part time at the university and continue to teach across all three years of the Occupational Therapy course and some of the master modules. I am keen to develop OT research and have a particular interest in placement assessments.
