I joined UWIC’s Cardiff School of Management in 2009 as a lecturer within Student Support and Pedagogy. I have also taught on the MBA module International HRM, and undergraduate modules such as the level 1 module Management Theory and Practice, and level 3 module International and Comparative HRM.

I was formerly a Senior Lecturer for eight years with the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Glamorgan, which began with developing  and delivering  a community-based intergenerational project, and I was also the Training Co-ordinator for the WAG funded Wales Centre for Intergenerational Practice responsible for the Wales wide training and consultancy service. 

I gained a PGCE (PCET) from Cardiff University in 2006. I have also taught a range of accredited  courses for the Centre for Lifelong Learning at Cardiff University such as Women into Management, Personnel & Human Resource Management,  Managing in Voluntary Sector

Prior to working in HE, I had eight years experience of management  in the voluntary sector, most recently as deputy director of an infrastructure voluntary organisation, during which I undertook my MBA  at the University of Glamorgan including a dissertation on Managing Change.

I have continued my links with the sector in South Wales by providing training and personnel consultancy covering subjects such as Roles & Responsibilities of Trustees and Financial Management.

My academic and research interests have been in the fields of management, communication, work-based learning and intergenerational practice. One example of research I have undertaken  investigated  the long-term impact of the Write-On! Learning Through Life intergenerational programme on attitudes to and engagement with lifelong learning and on interpersonal skills and intergenerational attitudes.  

I have most recently gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Applied Social Research, and I am a member of the New Economies research group. I am now embarking on a PhD here at UWIC, exploring the characteristics, roles and impact of women managers in SME voluntary sector organisations.
