I graduated from the University of Bath in 2015 with a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science. My experiences during my education increased my passion for health but also education provision. I started working at the University of the West of England, Bristol, in 2015. My role is Executive Support to the Department of Allied Health Professions, the Faculty Director of CPD and Educational Partnerships and the Faculty Senior Project Manager. In total, I provide support to 10 people in an area that combines both of my passions. In my spare time I also provide administrative support to the Council for Allied Health Professions Research (CAHPR) South West Hub. My work for CAHPR promotes research for Allied Health Professions and creates a research network within the South West.

I feel very strongly about the quality of Higher Education provision, especially for Healthcare students. Student experience is the priority and I ensure I do all I can to keep these standards high. My role ensures time is maximised for the Senior/Executive colleagues within the Faculty. I have recently started researching the generation gap. I have been lucky enough to share my findings with the Department, Faculty and Clinical Colleagues. It is a topic I find fascinating but also an area I feel individuals should understand within the workforce.

I am very fortunate to work within an inclusive and supportive organisation. As an individual with dyslexia, I have learnt that my dyslexia enables me to think differently. I involve myself in various inclusivity and widening participation events with the aim of ensuring equal opportunities for all.
