Stephanie graduated in 2021 with a First-Class Honours degree in Adult Nursing. She is a registered nurse with clinical experience working in the Regional Stroke Unit in Northern Ireland. Throughout her degree, Stephanie took on further training to better support people with dementia. In her second year, she applied to the Alzheimer’s Society to undertake a research project to understand the impact of dementia education. Stephanie was awarded a prestigious undergraduate research bursary to undertake this research (only 12 were available across the whole of the UK). Stephanie then worked alongside people with dementia, their caregivers, academic staff, and other nursing students as a team to co-design a game about dementia. She is currently a PhD student focusing on Dementia at the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen’s University Belfast.
