After reading Law at Newcastle and spending 12 months working as a graduate trainee in the Lord Chancellor’s Department, I joined the University in 1999. Since then I’ve worked in various Departments, starting in the Registrary’s Office and then moving on to become Faculty Administrator in Classics and then English.

In 2010 I became Head of Corporate Governance in the first Community Services NHS Trust, helping to establish the Trust and supporting several mergers and a significant change management programme. During my time with the NHS I also undertook postgraduate study in business law, finance and governance, to become a Chartered Company Secretary.

In 2013 I re-joined the University as Director of Operations at the Institute of Continuing Education, becoming Deputy Director of the Institute later that year. I joined Churchill as Bursar in February 2017.
