Michelle has been seconded to UCLan on a part time basis into the School of Health helping deliver higher education to the paramedic students. The rest of her working hours are spent out in practice as a paramedic with North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
Michelle started her career with Lancashire Ambulance Service in 2004 on the Patient Transport Service. Within 18 months she joined the newly formed North West Ambulance Service as an ambulance technician working on front line ambulances. In 2009 she successfully completed a series of assessments and was selected to be one of the first students to complete the Diploma in Higher Education Paramedic Practice. She completed this course gaining a distinction and obtained her registration with the Health Care & Professions Council as a registered paramedic.
After completing the diploma Michelle continued her studies at UCLan and went on to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree in Enhanced Paramedic Practice where she gained a 2:1 classification. She completed this award on a part time basis while still working fulltime on an operational ambulance.
While working as an operational paramedic Michelle has had the opportunity to mentor other paramedic students. She is able to utilise her experiences of higher education to ensure her students fully embrace their time on placement aiding their learning experience. Michelle was successfully appointed to the post of part time Paramedic Lecturer Practitioner in August 2014 and is now a fully- fledged member of the paramedic lecturing team.
