Jemima graduated from the University of Southampton with a first class degree and dual registration in Adult and Mental Health Nursing. She has always been curious and compelled by the complexities of humans, particularly in the physical health care provision within acute mental health care.

Jemima is a strong advocate for the parity of esteem between physical and mental health care services and believes passionately in equal access to services for all. Jemima has clinical experience within psychiatric intensive care as well as more recently within inpatient specialist eating disorders care and this has given her a broad range of acute mental health skills and knowledge, as well as showcasing her additional physical health skills and knowledge within these areas.

Jemima has a particular interest in early career leadership and empowering nurses to strive and advocate for excellence early within their careers and care delivery and during time as a student also. Jemima recently completed an Early Career Nurse leadership scholarship with the Florence Nightingale Foundation which was monumental in her development as an early career nurse, and found that this was transformational in taking the plunge into an academic role.
