Employment History

My passion has always been working with and supporting children and young people. I started out in Paediatric Nursing but decided to change career into Early Education. I then took up Practitioner and Leadership posts within the Public and Private sector in Clackmannanshire and Perth and Kinross. I then moved from Early Years into Further Education and started at UHI Perth in 2009. I started teaching within Perth high schools and now teach across a varied level of programmes both face to face and online, as well as engaging in research activity.
