I’m the Head of Workplace Learning for the Centre for Degree Partnerships, focusing on standardisation and good practice across all of our apprenticeship programmes at Exeter. My focus is our approach to mentoring from an apprentice persepctive as well as overview of some of our regulatory requirements for apprenticeships. Our aim is to create a community of practice for apprenticeships across all of our programmes. 

I joined the University in 2020, previously having worked in financial services as a senior leader for the past 25 years. In that time people development, coaching and mentoring has become my area of speciality. I’m proud to play a part in supporting Degree Apprentices for Exeter, it’s a privilege to see people develop and achieve through our programmes.

In my spare time I consider myself a relatively new ultra marathon runner, enjoying long distance running in some near and far locations!


I have spent the majority of my career working in financial institution, predominantly high street banking. My expertise have been in leadership, leading large teams of people across wide geographical locations. I have been involved in strategic work around diversity and inclusion, customer operations and efficiency.
