I joined the Careers Service in 2020 in my current role, I was on boarded remotely and worked entirely remotely for the first few months, which was very strange! Before joining the university, I have worked in many roles and settings in careers guidance and pastoral support including numerous schools, further education colleges, a sixth form college and lots of community settings. Before I trained as a Careers Adviser, I worked in several marketing roles, worked and travelled my way round the world and volunteered as a mentor.
I get great pleasure from helping students who are feeling lost and confused, suddenly see a clearer way forward and from helping to give them the self-belief that they can go for it and achieve what they’re aiming for.
Out of work, I enjoy lots of things. I’ve recently learnt to surf, which is so much fun and I’m now obsessed! I also sing in a choir, practice yoga and go running. I love nature too, so enjoy adventures in our camper van, walking and wild swimming.
I have a post graduate diploma in Careers Guidance, as well as a degree in Marketing and Human Resource Management
