Staff Wellbeing Champion


Within the Doctoral College, I support PhD students and academic colleagues in HSS. Before this I worked in roles in Student Support at Bath Spa University and worked for 14 years with the Open University’s Business School.

Wellbeing statement

There are many things we can do to help maintain our mental and physical wellbeing, but it’s not always easy to prioritise these when we all seem to lead such busy lives. I am keen to help others, even if it’s just with a friendly chat or by being able to point them in the way of support services available.


I love to travel and experience different places and cultures. I also love swimming in the sea and snorkelling. There isn’t much opportunity for either of these living in the UK, but I do love cycling and walking and I try to get out everyday either on my bike or for a brisk walk. I also find yoga helpful and chatting to good friends, of course.
