A proud Southampton girl, Carly was halfway through a degree in Biochemistry when she got a job as a care assistant and realised her passion for nursing. After graduating in Biochemistry Carly joined the NHS as a Health Care Assistant before training as a nurse.

Carly trained as a nurse at Southampton University, qualifying in 2007, and has worked continuously at local NHS trusts since then, additionally qualifying as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse – Health Visitor in 2011. Carly joined Solent University in 2022 as a lecturer in Nursing.

Her local, but clinically diverse experience of working in adult acute and critical care, children’s public health, and specialist roles mean she can bring learning to life, and help students to apply what they are learning to a range of real-world problems.
