About me

I am a Business Liaison Manager in the Student Journey Programme. The Student Journey Programme is a series of projects that seek to transform the way we work, & enhance the student journey. 

My roots are in public libraries in Lincolnshire. I worked in, and managed both prison & public libraries. 

Between December 2018 and summer 2021 I sat on the Board of Trustees for Jacari. Jacari seeks to pair university students with students from local schools who speak English as an additional language. They work together to improve students English speaking abilities, which in turn boosts their overall academic potential.

I have written a number of career focussed articles for the City Girl Magazine

I was formerly a Coordinator of UWE Bristol's Women's Forum, a staff network. My role involved promoting the network via a variety of communication channels, including managing their social media presence. 

I served as Head of Communications and Engagement for WHEN: Women's Higher Education Network between November 2019 and November 2020, working to deliver their first virtual conference, as well as developing partnerships with WonkHE and THE leading to multiple national publications. 

I founded and continue to run the UWE Aurora Alumni Network, for staff who have previously completed – or are currently undertaking – the Aurora programme. This programme is a leadership development programme for women working in higher education, and is run by Advance HE. I completed the programme myself in June 2019. 

In July 2019 I was awarded the We Are The City's Rising Star Award in the Education and Academia category. These national awards seek to promote the female pipeline, and shine a light on potential future leaders, as well a champion female role models. 

In January 2020 I was named on the Northern Power Women's Future List, which recognises future leaders, influencers and change makers who are already making a difference in their communities. 

In September 2020 I was placed at number 20 in HERoes Women Future Leaders international list. 

I am studying for an MBA at UWE through the degree apprenticeship route.
