Following university I relocated to Japan for two years to teach English to high school students and local governmental employees. After leaving Japan I moved to Sheffield to undertake a Masters degree. Once I’d finished my studies I returned home to the Wirral and was offered a permanent position in my first temp job, becoming PA to the Director of Biological and Earth Sciences at LJMU. I have now been a PA for 13 years and was promoted to my current role as Executive Assistant to the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research, Scholarship and Knowledge Transfer nearly two years ago.  I enjoy reading and try to read a book a week; I love history, politics, art and classical music. I play the viola in two orchestras and am currently teaching my niece to play the violin. I enjoy walking, spinning and Zumba classes. I love to travel and experience new cultures.
