I am in the process of writing up my PhD, a study of the educational experience of children in care. Previously I qualified as both a banker (ACIBS) and accountant (ACCA), who has changed career direction to study education, with a particular focus on marginalised groups. I have a proven track record of managing projects, people and tasks, in the finance arena as well as in education. My current research is a qualitative study, working with adults and children who have experienced ‘care’ and I have also . been involved in research projects which have enabled me to expand my skills in data collection analysis and communication. My teaching practice has encompassed primary schools, NVQ, BTEC, A level, Foundation and HE level 1 and 2. 

In addition to these more formal roles, I am actively involved in the voluntary sector, and have been instrumental in bids to local government.
