I have worked for Canterbury Christ Church University since January 2011.
I graduated with a BA hons Early Childhood Studies from University of Worcester in 2001 and completed my Early Years Professional Status at University of Reading in 2007.
Prior to working at the university I came from an Early Years practice background managing and leading a range of early years settings in the Berkshire and Oxfordshire region.
Since 2011, my initial role has developed from a sessional EYP mentor to now lecturing for the School of Childhood Education Sciences and also managing the Early Years Initial Teacher Training programme the only EYITT provision in Kent.
My office base is in Medway, although the best way to make contact with me is via email as I work across all sites and may also be out visiting students in schools and placements.
I have presented at the CCCU ITE partnership conferences in 2015, 2016, and most recently 2017.
I am also a member of the EYITT national ITE group.
