I completed my M.Ed. at the University of Manchester and my PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am now the Route Leader for the PgDip/MA Youth and Community Work course. In addition to my paid work I am also a trustee with the Louise Da-Cocodia Education Trust. This involves my voluntary contributions to the development of the Trust Saturday Supplementary School which is based at one of the local primary schools in Moss Side. The tutors and mentors includes MMU students on the BA (Hons) Youth and Community Work programme as well as science and humanities courses.

My aim is to teach in a manner which addresses the academic, professional and personal development needs of all students.
I have worked in community and adult education in Manchester as well as the Further Education sector.
