I am a Senior Lecturer and Programme Director within the Centre for Career and Personal Development. I am Programme Director for the Education Foundation Year, where I also lead and teach on modules. I also teach on MA Career Management, Certificate in Career Leadership and BA Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring.

I am a qualified coach, specialising in career coaching. I have worked as a careers practitioner for 15+ years, in a range of settings working with both adult and student clients. Before joinging Canterbury Christ Chuch University I worked at University of Kent, University of Law, FE College and for other public sector organisations.

Research and knowledge exchange

I am currently undertaking a PhD, using a feminist lens to explore the experiences of women who receive career coaching.

My previous research has focused on widening participation and non-traditional students in Higher Education and the experiences of students who receive coaching. 

My other research interests include vulnerable, disadvantaged and marginalised individuals and groups and career decision-making. I am especially interested in the relationship between mental health and job seeking.
