I am currently Principal of Norland College. I have had a long-standing career in early years education, training and provision both nationally and internationally.
Most recently, I was a Reader in Education and Early Years Education Award and Programme Leader at Bath Spa University.
I have an established track record of senior leadership in Higher Education, leading large degrees programmes in early years education and early childhood, as well as MA and doctoral degrees, alongside early years teacher training.
As a former teacher and early years practitioner, I have worked in a variety of early years settings and schools both in England and Europe.
In the past 10 years, I have worked at several universities and been a consultant for numerous Local Authority around the country, delivering training and keynotes at conferences.
I also ran my own business working with parents, babies and toddlers providing developmental and sensory workshops.
I have led several national research projects and have published numerous articles, for both academic and professional journals.
I am also the co-author of 2 books. I am a founder member of Emotion Coaching UK, an Associate of Early Education, Kate Cairns Associates and International Early Years, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
