I have a background in both statutory social work and social work in the not-for-profit sector. I enjoy working as part of the fieldwork team helping to prepare students for professional practice. I view this role as an exciting opportunity to work with students, the university and the community to develop the professional practice of social work.

Teaching Interests

My role involves teaching on the Introduction to Professional Practice paper and coordinating fieldwork placements for third and fourth year social work students.
