In 2006, I joined the University of Aberdeen as a CPD Business Development Officer within Research & Innovation.  Over the years the team has grown in size and scope; now consisting of 7 part-time members of staff and managing large-scale association conferences as well as smaller, tailored and accredited courses and events.  I also collate and report the Institutional CPD returns to the funding councils.  I am a member of the AUA (Association of University Administrators) having studied their PgCert in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership with a particular focus on student finance, change management and reflective learning.

Prior to the University, I worked as a Lecturer with Aberdeen College (now NESCOL) teaching Communication, Marketing and various computer and ECDL related modules.  I worked as a Vocational Assessor for those studying Administration and Management to degree level for Protocol Skills and Protocol National.  My career started at OPITO where I took an interest in training, competencies and standards development.

I am a Type-1 Diabetic, and mum of 4 children (2 boys, 2 girls) which takes up most of my time and energy, as well as my love for running at 5am which is my peaceful and quiet time.
