About me

As the Business Manager for the Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education (ACE), I am a senior member of the Faculty Executive team with lead responsibility for driving change initiatives.   

I started my career in Higher Education at UWE supporting the Academic Registrar and then became an Assistant Academic Registrar. I was responsible for ensuring the quality and standards of our provision and developed a Shell Award Framework where learning for and from professional development can be accumulated for a higher education qualification. 

I am proud to be a member of such an ambitious and relevant University - awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2018 and with fantastic results in the annual National Student Survey rising year-on-year - in a superb city. 

As a Faculty, we are constantly pushing ourselves to achieve in new ways. We have recently opened two new facilities at Bower Ashton Campus; we provide unique settings for our students to study at Spike Island and on Bristol's historic harbourside in space shared with the iconic Arnolfini Art Gallery; and at Frenchay Campus, in our beautiful dedicated building, we have re-designed space for our students to work together and gather together. We are reinvigorating our curriculum and our research and our graduates and researchers will be the next "game changers". As a Faculty we are vibrant, dynamic and ambitious and I am very excited about where we are heading.   

I have a passion for education in all its forms; pre-school to higher education and beyond, including lifelong learning and learning from work. I am an engaged Higher Education Professional, committed to my own career development as well as that of my colleagues. I am a member of the Association of University Administrators and actively champion the professional culture of administrators at UWE Bristol. I believe in advancing education for the benefit of all and to working to the highest standards of professional behaviours.
