I combine different roles

I teach on the nursing and midwifery programme.

In addition to my work at Linköping University, I am a clinical lecturer at the Children’s and Women’s Centre (BKC) in Region Östergötland. 

I also work as a midwife in the obstetrics department at Vrinnevi Hospital in Region Östergötland.

I was awarded the Excellent Inspirer prize for 2015 by Consensus and the students on the nursing programme. Excellent Inspirer is a prize awarded by the study programmes at the Faculty of Medicine.
