I have worked at the University Centre Blackburn College since 2010, but have been involved in teaching in Higher Education since 2005, initially at UClan and then at Edge Hill University. Having achieved my previous degrees in the area of Complementary Therapies, I have changed direction with my doctoral studies and have undertaken a Professional Doctorate in Education.
