I’ve recently joined Study Higher having returned from maternity leave and I’m excited to be part of the team! I believe all students should be able to access user friendly information, allowing them to make an informed decision on what the right next educational or employment steps are for them. It’s a rewarding experience being able to have supported so many students (and their families!) with their progression to higher education and a journey I’m keen to continue.
Prior to this role I was the Events Manager at Bucks for student recruitment activities such as open days and UCAS fairs and I had oversight of the Student Ambassador Scheme. My university career has included working as a student ambassador, in undergraduate admissions, account management and delivery of activities for schools and colleges to encourage progression to higher education, management of prospective student enquiries and the delivery and oversight of numerous events for varying audiences.
Growing up, I am from a military family and understand first-hand the challenges this brings. I have a degree in Psychology from the University of Reading and a Masters in Leadership and Management from Bucks New University. Outside of work my children are usually keeping me on my toes!
