I joined the University of Edinburgh as the Teaching Service Manager in the School of Social and Political Science in August 2020. Prior to this I had covered a number of short term contracts at the University of Stirling in the Academic Registry and in the School of Health Science and Sport. I had previously worked at Heriot-Watt University for 15 years and also at Queen Margaret University College, now Queen Margaret University.

I am a career administrator within the HE sector and enjoy the challenges that working in higher education brings. My key strengths are people skills and data analysis/management.

Roles and responsibilities

I manage the two Teaching Office teams in SPS, as well as the PGR Support Team.
