Mia is a Senior Research Nurse in the Edinburgh Critical Care Research Group.
Mia graduated Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2007 in the Philippines and began her nursing profession as a staff nurse in the Emergency Room. She then became an Occupational Health Nurse for a retail company.
In 2016, she migrated to, and became a registered nurse, in the UK. She started as a Staff Nurse in the Major Trauma Ward of The Newcastle Upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust.
When she moved to the role of Anaesthetic Nurse, it inspired her to broaden her career in Anaesthesia, Pain and Critical Care. This interest led her to join the Edinburgh Critical Care Research Group as a Senior Research Nurse. To this date, she is keen to be involved and work further in this field. She is mostly based at the Western General Hospital and has helped in expanding Critical Care Research in NHS Lothian.
