What is a typical day at work for you?

My days are quite varied with a combination of teaching, meeting students and colleagues, marking, preparing for lessons, developing module contents and looking for interesting worthwhile opportunities to enhance the students learning experience.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

I’d have to say working with the students themselves, exploring topics together, talking about how the theory and models can be applied in the real world. It’s great to be able to work with students from day one all the way through their time here.

What has been your proudest moment whilst working at the University?

A heartfelt, and much appreciated “thank you, you are awesome," message from a student not long after I started teaching. It meant so much and has helped me to appreciate what students want and need from their tutors.  

Do you have any exciting upcoming projects?

I’m really keen that we give students a head start in the world of work so will continue to develop the range of opportunities we offer students such as guest speakers, trips, network events and opportunities to work with local businesses and organisations.

Choose a movie title for the story of your life.

'It’s a Wonderful Life' –  life sends you challenges but be true and kind to yourself and others on the way.

If you could have a superpower what would you choose?

I’d stop time occasionally, so we could stop and chill and enjoy the moment. I’m sure I am not alone when I say I that I juggle a busy home and work life and although I do try to make time to relax – I’m sure we would all appreciate a little more downtime.

What is the best piece of advice that you could give to a student?

Embrace the learning opportunity fully; attend lessons, share your views, listen to others, speak to tutors, and get involved in activities and opportunities.

What makes University Centre Shrewsbury unique?

UCS not only sits in a unique, beautiful town which offers a combination of culture, events and activities right on the doorstep, but also we are a growing university. This means that students are more than a number – the University team and tutors all invest in students and work hard to support them to achieve their full potential.
