I am a Senior Lecturer and Pathway Leader for Early Years Post Graduate Certificate in Education with QTS. My background is in Early Years Education and Further Education Post 16.

My research interests are in Sustainability and Leadership and Management within the Early Years Sector. I lead a Forest School project within the university, providing trainees with the opportunity to develop their skills and understanding of learning outside the classroom and encouraging young children to develop their confidence and understanding of the natural world.

I am currently working with the Edge Hill sustainability group with the overall aim of increasing environmental and sustainability awareness across the university.
