m. 07739 364034

I was born and raised in the States before moving to the UK for a job in publishing, which was followed by completing my MSc and PhD in Education at the University of Oxford. Alongside pursuing postgraduate degrees, I held a variety of roles across the higher education landscape, including working as a researcher; as a Student Advisor at a Students’ Union; and as a lecturer teaching personal and professional development skills to master’s and doctoral students.

One of my main reasons for completing a PhD was to make a difference in education, which led me to pursue a role at a policy-engaged foundation where my work centred on informing national education policy in the UK. Now I help not-for-profit organisations, including foundations, trusts, and think tanks, find excellent candidates who understand and are committed to the positive changes they seek to make in the world.

In addition to enjoying helping others and organisations become the people and places they aspire to be, I love baking, books, coffee, libraries, and long walks.
