Empowering Students’ Unions to find diverse talent with the ideas, passion, and talent to embed lasting change.


My university and professional life were shaped by the student movement. Across my four-year course at Durham University and the University of Mcgill, Canada. I have worked as a campaigner, a Sabbatical Officer and a Trustee at Durham SU. I saw firsthand the investment staff placed in student leaders – the work of staff and Trustees behind the scenes is critical and fundamental to the ability of students’ unions to do great work, represent thousands of students, and change society.

I am inspired to work at Peridot to empower diverse and successful talent to join the student movement and wider third sector. As a people-orientated person who enjoys working alongside colleagues with socially conscious values, I know I am in the right place. I am enjoying paying back the investment and guidance that was given to me and finding new third-sector leaders.

I strive for authenticity to demonstrate there is no one way to live your life. In my personal life, I love to perform and organize shows, watch an eclectic mix of films, take long dog walks through fields, and have recently learned to ballroom dance! I am a passionate member of the LGBT+ community and champion global queer rights with the non-profit organisation ReportOUT.
