I am the Exeter Innovation Impact and Partnership Development Manager for Responsible Business, which supports engagement in the following areas:

  • Circular Economy 
  • Environmental, Social Governance
  • Leadership

My role sits within the UoE Business School, and I work closely with academics to support business engagement. 


Bsc in Hotel, Catering & Institutional Management

NVQ Level 4 Supply Chain Management


I joined Exeter Innovation in September 2022 as an IPDO within the Environment, Science and Economy faculty. My role allowed me to focus on supporting business engagement for various Centre for Doctoral Training bids, as well as a range of business engagement including supporting academics on Innovate UK funded projects. 

Prior to joining the University of Exeter I worked at the Cornwall College Group for 12 years. The last six years were spent on an ERDF funded programme via Unlocking Potential where I was a Business Development Manager supporting Cornish based businesses with their growth and innovation aspirations. Prior to this, I worked in Procurement where I led and managed various categories including Food, IT Equipment, and Corporate Insurance to name just a few. I have held the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) accreditation.
