Biography

I am Programme Leader and Senior Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Sport Development degree at Liverpool John Moores University. In addition to my main academic duties I have fulfilled many other roles, including being Admissions Tutor, Assessment Officer and Year Tutor. I am also a mentor for the University’s Sport Scholar programme.

I have coordinated the LJMU / UK Sport IDEALS Namibia programme (International Development of Excellence And Leadership through Sport) since 2007. In this programme undergraduate students work alongside local placements such as Physically Active Youth, Special Olympics Namibia, SCORE, Namibian FA and the Frank Fredericks Foundation to develop leadership and cultural understanding for all the participants. Past involvement in other international programmes includes the British Council Dreams and Teams programme in Jordan.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Member of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity. I am also External Examiner for the BSc Sport Development and MSc Sport Management programmes at the University of Portsmouth.

Prior to working at LJMU I worked for over a decade in a number of sport related posts, including local authority sport development delivery and management; facility management; leisure services client monitoring; national governing body of sport; the National Community Faculty of the Youth Sport Trust; and voluntary work in Papua New Guinea for the South Pacific Games. I am currently a voluntary mentor in the north-west for the national charity Sported.
