About me

A languages graduate, my early career in the financial sector included training of colleagues and clients, with client visits and conference travel, predominantly in Europe and Asia. In 2004, I followed my vocation and completed my PGCE: Early Years and Modern Foreign Languages at Goldsmiths.
My passion for facilitating children’s communication is fuelled by my own early experience living in a new language and culture, when my father’s work moved our family to Brazil.
In recent years, I have worked in learning support with students ranging from primary years to post-graduate level.
Since 2016, I have lectured on undergraduate and postgraduate courses with a focus on early years and inclusion. I joined UWE in January 2021 as a Senior Lecturer in Education and Early Childhood.

Area of expertise

My interests lie in inclusive education – life-long and life-wide.

My article reporting on my masters action research exploring techniques to support executive function in the classroom was published in the 2017 professional journal of the Dyspraxia Foundation.

My doctoral research is a study of families who home educate when schools are not considered to meet their children’s needs.
