Principal Lecturer (Students)
I have experience teaching in the early years, primary, secondary and Further Education sectors. I have taught in Higher Education for the last ten years; in the USA, Wales and now at Gloucester. My passion for teaching stems from my Masters studies in Adapted Physical Activity (APA). Since arriving at Gloucester I have developed the field of Adapted Physical Activity and Disability Sport. With the support of a group of undergraduate students and Active Gloucestershire we have set up “No Limits”, an inclusive sports club for children (aged 8-16) in the local community. I am also one of the founding members of GAIN (Gloucestershire Activity Inclusion Network) and I also represent the University on the local Special Schools PE Forum.
I currently coordinate the Academic Review Tutors (ART) programme for the Faculty and the induction programme that takes place each year.
