Jenny is a Registered Nurse from England who qualified in 1995 and has worked in palliative care for the majority of her nursing career. Jenny has gained experience in inpatient, hospital and community palliative care teams. She gained an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice (Cancer Nursing) in 2007, from Surrey University.
Jenny moved to Australia in 2017 and worked in the palliative care team in Alice Springs, before moving to Darwin to work with the Top End palliative care team. Jenny then gained experience within the education sector, working as a VET Lecturer/Workplace Assessor at Charles Darwin University. She achieved her Cert IV in Teaching and Assessing during this time. Jenny spent just over a year in Townsville where she worked as a Nurse Navigator in Palliative Care, before returning to Darwin in June 2021.
Jenny is excited to be member of the PEPA team. Working in this role provides her with the opportunity to combine her palliative care knowledge and skills and education experience. Jenny is currently studying part-time for an MSc in Counselling with the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors.
