I am a senior lecturer in the LSBU School of Business specialising in accounting, governance and finance courses. I joined LSBU in 2012 after having worked in various industries as a Senior Accountant/ Governance & Compliance Leader for almost 20 years. I was appointed the Course Director for BA Business Management with Accounting|Finance in 2020; in 2022 Course Director for BA Accounting & Finance. My background has enabled the sharing of professional experience in the classroom supported by researched theoretical knowledge.

I am passionate about all the accounting modules I teach because they are fundamental to the development of future professionals.

My post graduate research focused on gender diversity and it's impact on the performance of FTSE 250 companies. In future, I would like to develop this research in a different environment, especially where female professionals are less active in the economy.

Outside my role as a lecturer, I am a member of the Barking and Dagenham College Board, a further education (FE) college based in East London. On this board, I chair the Audit Committee, which allows me to apply acquired knowledge in reality while developing further HE learning.

I am a fellow of the Association of both Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), member bodies of International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).

I was recently nominated and shortlisted as the Lecturer of the year (2021/22).
