I work at LSBU as the Senior Lecturer in Business Skills in the Business School. Prior to this, I had a 23-year career in Recruitment in London and 6 years as a teacher in Queensland, Australia and London. My interests include empowering all students to develop employability skills, confidence, resilience and ultimately self-efficacy in order to successfully apply knowledge into work placed learning.

Prior to joining LSBU I held a wide variety of managerial and educational recruitment positions. I began my career as a Consultant attracting and retaining staff to work in Local Authority inner city schools, followed by becoming an Account Manager developing bespoke worldwide recruitment campaigns for various Local Authorities across England. For the last 4 years of my recruitment career, I developed training solutions for students across the world to be effective classroom practitioners in schools, while developing partnerships with Universities in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. As a Senior Manager, I have successfully led sales and support teams, including remote teams, to achieve the aims of supporting schools and candidates through ongoing training and account management support.

Prior to my recruitment career, I worked as a Teacher in inner city Brisbane, Australia where I worked in both single-teacher schools and multiage classrooms where I developed a strong awareness of the importance of community in lifelong learning. I also worked in London as both a classroom teacher and a member of the SLT.

I am currently a Trustee and Board Member of a Multi Academy Trust of Primary and Special Needs Schools and a Local School Governor within London and Essex.
