I became a trustee for Swansea Music Art Digital because I felt a strong connection with its founding principles and a deep admiration for the day-to-day work of its energetic and hardworking staff.

I live in sunny Swansea with my young daughter and partner. I am an English Coordinator at a local college and I also hold a teaching post at Swansea University’s Centre for Academic Success. I began my working life with brief stints in fashion and sales before gaining a PGCE from Greenwich University in 2004. I had the privilege of starting my lecturing career at New City College, Tower Hamlets, where I witnessed inclusion policies successfully put into practice, creating a learning environment where young people felt safe, listened to, and able to meet their full potential. This has inspired me throughout my career.

I like to meet a challenge and I enjoy working with people. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals from all over the world through my work which has been a great source of joy and inspiration to me.

I have almost two decades of experience teaching English in FE and HE sectors, including the successful coordination of large programs of study including GCSE English Language. I am also an SpLD specialist.
