I am a Senior Fellow of the HEA with a varied, flexible skill set which includes the ability to teach, inspire and motivate. I am strategically minded coming from an industry background in Project Management with an in-depth knowledge of HE and exceptional understanding and empathy at many levels. Roles have included Framework Leadership, working strategically at a senior management level, working across the institution including the SU focusing on the student voice, championing the employability and student experience agendas and being a founding member of BU’s Centre for Excellence in Learning (CEL). I proudly excel where student feedback is concerned and am recognised for being intrinsically pedagogically driven where teaching excellence, the student experience and their preparation for the world of work are my strengths.

Public Engagement & Outreach Activities

  • As part of the Applied Physiology Unit students are afforded opportunites to develop employability related skills applicable to industry. For the first time a group of older adults up to age 90, all cancer survivors attended the Sports Peformance Laboratory and students engaged in testing protocols currently being used to assess health and well being in these special populations
  • As part of the Applied Physiology Unit students are responsible for evaluating a sport to determine the physiological needs. Based upon these needs, students design a bespoke laboratory based physiological assessment which they apply in practice testing elite athletes. Feedback is then provided to each athlete on an individualised basis
