Personal profile


I have worked in both the sports industry and higher education for the last 18 years. My industry roles included general sports development, coach education, swimming specific development and working alongside volunteers to improve the customer experience. In 2009 my role with the ASA became more business focused, as I was tasked with working alongside leisure providers to improve access and participation within swimming.

In 2012 I completed my MSc in Managing Sports Development at Sheffield Hallam. I returned to Hallam as a Lecturer in Sport Business Management in 2015 and have since progressed to my current role as Deputy Head of Department in the School of Sport and Wellbeing at Leeds Trinity University. 

Research interests

I have a number of research interests spanning both industry and education. I am currently undertaking my Doctorate in Education at The University of Sheffield. 

My industry research interests centre around how sport is used within HE for a range of intended outcomes.

My educational interests focus on educational policy in HE, the student experience of HE and the position of parents within the HE landscape. I am passionate advocate of our students success and I am  currently exploring projects that look to address the awarding gap in undergraduate students.
