About me

I currently hold two part-time roles. I work as a Global Student manager within Future Students team. My other role is within Student Money Service and focuses on financial education and student engagement.

Within my role, I provide financial education and work with students to improve their financial capability skills. My role also focuses on promoting financial education amongst students and colleagues across the university such as student services, SU, academics. I provide one to one appointments, run workshops and attend events aiming to enhance students' financial capability. Within my current role, I successfully led introduction of online financial capability resources for prospective and current UWE students. I am responsible for implementation and monitoring usage of Blackbullion resources by students. I am interested in project management and hold PRINCE2 foundation certificate.

My work was also recognised externally by National Association of Student Money Advisers. For two years in a row I won NASMA Student Money Advice Award in Financial Capability engagement category.

I run Financial Capability Module for UWE students. This six-hour module introduces students to multiple subjects in the world of personal finance.

I am an accredited member of National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA), Institute of Money Advisers (IMA) and hold Certificate in Money Advice Practice (CertMAP).  I actively participate in shaping financial capability in higher education as a member of NASMA Financial Capability Committee. I am passionate about equal opportunities, social justice and widening participation to higher education. 

I am also an active member of two UWE staff networks. I am a coordinator of Women's Forum and a member of EU Staff Network. I like being involved and make other people's voices and needs heard.
