I first came to Exeter as a PGCE student in the 70s; then as a Masters Educational Psychology student in the 80s. This was followed by several years of research work, looking at young children’s social awareness and interactions.
It was then time to swap my student 'hat' for 'lecturer' and since 1990 I've taught across a wide range of programmes within the School. What's great about my role is that I constantly get to work with so many exciting people - both staff and students - and I'm constantly learning new things.
My new role as International Coordinator builds on my experience of living abroad and of working closely with our international students at the School. I also work with external organisations to raise the profile of both the University and the School here in the UK and overseas.
When I'm not working, I'm a really keen gardener and love walking around our beautiful campuses and grounds.
