I am an experienced project manager and postdoctoral science graduate, with proven track record of revenue generation. I have worked at MMU since 2006, as KTP manager, then Enterprise Manager at Hollings Faculty. In 2017, I joined the Business Development Team in HPSC. Responsibilities include forging strategic links with industry across a wide variety of sectors, facilitating new business, increasing turnover and diversification of revenue streams as well as the preparation, submission and critical review of funding proposals, bids and tenders.
I have 4 young children at home so very little time for leisure activities of my own, but I do enjoy crochet, going to festivals and travelling to exotic places when the opportunities arise.

I have been involved in several funded projects from inception to completion, including the NWDA/TSB Innovation Voucher scheme, Knowledge Transfer Partnership programmes and Higher Level Skills Partnerships (in which short courses were developed in conjunction with SME partners, tailored to meet industry needs).
I have four young children and am very involved with my branch of the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). I coordinated the branch from 2015-2017. Since 2011, I have been operating a not-for-profit sling library to support parents in Oldham and Rochdale. We also have links with the Children of Watamu (Kenya) where we spent our honeymoon and Forever Angels children's home in Tanzania.
