My pronouns are she/her. I job-share the Learning Adviser role with Carol John and work half a day a week at SOAS. I have worked in the Disability and Neurodiversity service at SOAS since 2000.

I also work at Liverpool Hope University in a similar role. I have an MA in Applied Linguistics, and postgraduate qualifications in Specific Learning Differences, with a particular interest in language learning and dyslexia. My earlier career was in South Africa where I was involved in adult and teacher education.
