About me

I’m a qualified careers adviser and coach (MA, Warwick University) with a background in scientific research and publishing. A Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I specialise in providing career development education to doctoral and early career researchers and have been delivering career workshops and one-to-one career coaching for over 20 years in research institutions, universities, EU consortia and DTPs. My training is inclusive and aims to provide a space for informing, reflecting and action-planning in key aspects related to academic and non-academic career planning. As a registered career practitioner with the Career Development Institute and the Association for Graduate Careers Services (AGCAS), my training and coaching services are in compliance with a nationally recognised ethical code of practice.
