I am Subject Director for Postgraduate Study and Senior Lecturer in Business and Management at York St John University, teaching on both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. I teach across a range of Business and Management subject areas, including IT, tourism, project management, business politics and career and professional development.
I completed my PhD titled Governance and Community Advocacy in Tourism Development: An International Comparison awarded by the University of Leeds.
I am a committee member on the Minster Quarter, appointed in 2008, and a member of the Visit York Visitor Economy steering group.
I lead the Heritage and Arts Visitor Research Collaborative (HAVRC) research group. As a University Liaison Representative within York Business School, I work closely with our collaborative partners at home and overseas.
Previously, I worked for an international language school teaching English as a foreign language. I have also lectured at partner universities in Rotterdam, Seville and Vietnam.
