Email Address:

I joined Cardiff School of Management in September 2007 having worked in professional administration and management in both the Further and Higher Education sectors for a number of years. 


As Business Support Manager and member of the School’s Senior Management and Planning Team, I lead the management of the business support team, student administration, budgets and human resources.  I oversee a range of functions which support strategic planning within the School and am actively involved in the further development of the interface between the School and central units.  I have responsibility for the continued reconfiguration of administrative roles and staffing structures within the School to ensure that they are aligned with academic priorities and strategic goals.


As part of my continuing professional development, I am particularly interested in exploring issues of strategic staff development and the professionalisation of business support staff within the Higher Education sector.
