I currently lecture on the BA (Hons) Practice Realities module and MA Complex practice, supporting students to prepare for Social Work employment.

I previously had a joint role with Worcestershire County Council and University of Worcester. At the council, I worked as the Principal Social Worker for Adults. Here I had the opportunity to develop Adult Social Care by working on staff heath checks, overseeing quality assurance and improvement of social work practice, promoting social work practice events, evaluating the 3 Conversation model implementation and delivering bespoke legislation training.

Prior to this role, I worked as an Assistant Team Manager in Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council. I predominantly worked with adults in the community.

I look forward to supporting students with an understanding of the skills needed for current Social Work practice.
