About me

As Project Officer for Internal Schemes, I am responsible for the operational delivery of the internal funding schemes connected with the development of research and innovation for the University. I help to design and implement the overall project plans, ensuring timely delivery of milestones and contractual deliverables.

The Internal Funding Schemes can be found here:

I have worked and/or volunteered in the third sector in Bristol for over 13 years, and this has given me the opportunity to take on multiple projects and directly support diverse community/arts groups with their development and fundraising, increasing their capacity in their quest for sustainability. 

I have been a Trustee at The Misfits Theatre Company since 2014 - - a theatre and social group led by and for people with learning difficulties in Bristol where I actively contribute to the Board of Directors, giving strategic direction to the organisation, setting overall policy, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance.
