Anne worked as a primary school teacher in England and New Zealand for five years before completing an MA Psychology and Counselling at Manchester Metropolitan University. She combined her interests in working with children and well-being, as well as visual and participative methodology, to form a funded PhD based around children's perspectives of well-being, again at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Following the completion of her PhD, Anne began teaching at Sheffield Hallam University. She teaches on the undergraduate degree as well as leading the thesis stage for the EdD. Anne supervises MA and doctoral students.
