5 minutes with Jacqui Boulton

23 September 2022

Meet Jacqui Boulton, who was recently promoted to Senior Lecture in Nursing Education. Jacqui has been working at King's for 13 years, joining directly from her practice as a nurse. She is the Faculty lead for Electives, Exchanges & Global Health, as well as for all things related to immunisations & vaccinations. We spent 5 minutes with Jacqui to find out more about her career & life outside work...

Jaqui Boulton

What led you to an academic career?

From as long as I can remember I have had a desire to be involved in global health nursing. Having trained and practiced as a nurse/midwife, mother of two and medical anthropologist, that desire has come to fruition in a variety of ways, most of which I could not have predicted!

What is a typical working day like for you?

I am tempted to say: ‘If only there was a typical day’, but equally I know it is the variation of my work that keeps my interest…though it also sometimes keeps me awake at night! 

What’s your favourite part of your role?

Observing the development of critical thinking in the students and helping them to see health and illness through the eyes of others, in many different contexts.

Quick Fire:

Who inspires you most and why?

A difficult one. There are too many!

Where is your happy place? On a plane above cloud level, surrounded by blue skies and anticipating the destination ahead. I’ve had to adjust this to the tennis court in the last few years. 

Favourite motivational quote? 'Necessity is the mother of invention’

Favourite film? The Constant Gardener (2005)
