Digital, Tech, Innovation & Business

Following a varied work background from setting up and running my own businesses to working for a global software company, I returned to University as a mature student completing an accelerated degree in Accounting and Finance. I possess a diverse range of experience in lecturing, teaching and training. My past positions incorporating accounting, business administration, leadership and management skills help to contextualise business theories and principles in my teaching.
