School Administration Assistant
Originally from Tamworth in Staffordshire (where the famous Tamworth Two escapee pigs are from) I moved to Aberdeen in 2008.
I enrolled at the University of Aberdeen to study my MA in Scottish Studies, completing it in 2012. Then after working six years in administration, auditing and project management at Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City Council, and volunteering at different museums for thirteen years, I went on to study and complete my MLitt in Museum Studies at the University of Aberdeen.
I joined the University of Aberdeen originally in January 2020, working as a Curriculum Administrator, and upon the end of my contract in January 2021 I moved to the School of Education as a School Administration Assistant. I work with the Partnership Unit on Mondays and from Tuesday to Friday I work with the Learning and Teaching Team, predominately working on Online Access courses.
I am lead data analyst for the School of Education Silver Athena Swan application.
I am also Clerk and Professional Services Representative for the School of Education Equalities, Diversity, and Inclusivity Committee.
As of early April 2023 I received my ILM 3 qualification from the university.
Being interested in history, I write an article in the School of Education Learning Strands newsletters about the history of the School of Education and notable graduates.
Outside of work I am a keen reader, walker and have an interest in nature, history and just learning new things.
