I graduated in 2008 and immediately gained employment at Montgomery High School, where I worked as part of a cover supervisor team until January 2011.
In 2011, I took time out to travel in Asia and Australia and returned to complete my teacher training in 2012, gaining subsequent employment at Highfield Humanities College in 2013. I also held a temporary teaching post during this time at Eton College, delivering on their International Summer School Programme.
In 2014 I joined Blackpool Football Club where I was employed as Head of Education and Welfare within the club’s academy, and also as an Education Officer for the club’s Community Trust delivering on their BTEC programmes.
I joined B&FC as a lecturer in July 2015.
I am passionate about all aspects of health, but have particular enthusiasm for the anatomical sciences, human physiology, physiological disorders and infectious diseases.

BA (Hons) Sports Studies and Development
I have been lucky in that I have had a relatively broad experience of working with young people in educational settings so far in my career. I have worked in two local high schools, a world renowned private school, an educational setting within a football club and now in a large and successful college.
I also have experience of working as part of a multi-disciplinary team at a professional football club academy, where I worked closely with club doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists, coaches and academy players’ schools to maximise their educational progress alongside their football.
I am currently completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Anatomical Sciences at Edinburgh University. Upon completion, I plan on continuing with my postgraduate study up to full Masters level.
I have fully maintained my CPD record throughout my time at the college and have maintained subject currency by spending five days per academic year back in industry. I have particularly improved in my digital literacy which I have found to be essential in today’s climate.
I completed all of my further and higher education at B&FC, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I made some great memories and my experiences have allowed me to pursue a career I have always wanted.
I am now very proud to work at B&FC with such amazing and dedicated staff across the college.
I continue to be amazed by the students I teach each year and it is great to see the progress they make in their time with us and the success they go on to achieve.
