After graduating from Glasgow University, in 1994, Ingrid followed a career in intensive-care nursing, in hospitals around the UK and Australia. She went on to complete a Diploma in Intensive Care Nursing, at Birmingham City University, graduating at the start of the new millennium.

In order to support her work in this area, she has recently completed an MA in Online and Distance Education, and will be using the skills and knowledge gained in this, to enhance the delivery of the new Bachelor of Science Nursing Studies programme that commences in 2015.
