I joined LSBU in January 2020 as a Senior Lecturer in Accounting. Currently, I am a Link Manager for the Association of Chartered and Certified Accountants and a Fellow of ACCA and a Senior HEA Fellow with over 25 years of teaching experience in the higher education sector.

I have presented papers at many conferences via the British Accounting and Finance Association, AdvanceHE and international conferences.

I have in the past held many roles in the HE sectors, including course leader for the Business and Accounting undergraduate degree and Head of the School of Accounting and Finance.

I am a member of the British Accounting and Finance Association accounting education. I am a member of the Council for Commonwealth Education. I volunteer for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, campaigning for inclusivity.
