Helen qualified as a Registered Children’s Nurse from Cardiff University in 2014.

Helen has been lecturing at Oxford Brookes University on the children’s nursing pre-registration course since 2020 and currently works part time lecturing, whilst working clinically part time as a band 5 staff nurse in Paediatric Critical Care at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
