I joined the Earlham Institute in December 2017 as the Executive Assistant to the Director and to provide administrative support to the National Institutes of Bioscience (NIB) as their Coordinator.

I support the E.I Senior Management Team meetings and provide administrative assistance to the Director’s E.I All briefings.  I coordinate NIB workshops and meetings, which include the meeting of the Directors of the seven Institutes with the BBSRC, and the annual Individual Excellence Board.

Before joining E.I, I coordinated the administration of a variety of Higher Education programmes at a local college, primarily focusing on student related policies and procedures, and course approvals.  I have previously managed small administration teams in HR and finance settings, in both public and private sector organisations.
