About me


I am a senior lecturer and employabililty lead in Accounting and Finance.  I am a UWE BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance alumna and joined UWE as a lecturer in 2014 and therefore been an educator in HEIs for 7 years and hold the Fellow of HEA qualification for 5 years. 


I am a qualified Chartered Accountant with ICAEW and had worked in professional practice for 6 years before joining UWE.  I have experience working with SMEs, individuals and partnerships in the fields of financial accounting, tax and insolvency. 


I am passionate about graduate employability and I work with Accounting Institutes and external employers closely and I embed employability activities directly into our curriculum. I aim to combine theory and practice, experiential learning and development of employment skills in my pedagogy. Examples of this are Mock Assessment Centre in collaboration with PwC, Ask the Expert, Enterprise event with NatWest and mock interview practice.

Due to my extensive collaboration with UWE's external stakeholders, I am also a CGMA Academic Champion and on the consultation HE panel for Pearson in assisting the development of new technical qualifications.

I am also a member of the Aurora Advance HE leadership programme.
