I am an experienced senior lecturer in the business, operations and systems subject group at the Sheffield Business School. I am also the course leader for the MSc Total Quality Management and Organisational Excellence distance learning course.

My interests include engaging with roles such as journal reviewer for the Sheffield Hallam University Student Engagement and Experience Journal, mentor for the Sheffield Enterprise Agency and Managing Director of the Professional Women Society.
