About me

Student Ventures Manager (LCI), leading on coaching and mentoring strategy, development, and implementation. I believe that through empathetic and intuitive coaching & mentoring we can help students to overcome barriers, increase in confidence and realise their potential. My vision was formed from first-hand user experience in various contexts; academic, sporting, & business.  

I've been at UWE since 2016, UWE Alumni (Business Team Entrepreneurship), and worked in multiple roles within the Careers and Enterprise service. I also passed my Institute of Leadership and Management Executive Coaching & Mentoring Level 7 programme at UWE in early 2023.

Experience and Projects:

  • Stakeholder relationship management; sourcing College student consultancy projects, liaising with service sponsors, and connecting employers with student & graduate talent.
  • Founding and running a student start-up company; winner of UWE funding competitions, former Launch Space resident, and mentor of the next generation of UWE student entrepreneurs.   
  • Event organisation and facilitation; Large scale Careers & Enterprise events, such as Professional Practice Week. Enterprise Festival, Start-up Drinks, and delivering curricular/co/extracurricular Enterprise & Entrepreneurship sessions.
  • Project management and strategy; designing a Student Ventures coaching & mentoring framework which aligns with the University 2030 Strategy and Target Operating Model (TOM), to ensure all student entrepreneurs have access to coaching & mentoring experiences that are inspiring and connected.

Interests & Hobbies:

  • Cooking… with varied results.
  • Playing the guitar.
  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
