I teach across a range of modules on both the Sport Development with Coaching and the Physical Education and School Sport Undergraduate degree routes and have in the past taught on the Postgraduate Sport Development leadership and management programme.
I have over 15 years industry experience in sport development, having been employed within both Local Authority and Sport National Governing Body organisations. The main feature of my various positions was to increase participation in sport and physical activity and the creation of sporting pathways for participants, coaches and volunteers.
I joined the University in 2003 as a Senior Lecturer and have been involved with student liaison since 2005 before taking on the role of Course Leader.
My research interests include the role of the voluntary sports club in the community, the nature and purpose of sport development
