I first joined the Economics Department back in 1989 as an Undergraduate Secretary. I spent many happy years in the department and had the joy of seeing many cohorts of student’s graduate. In 2004 it was finally time for me to break away to spend time with my family. In 2006 I moved to France and ran a Bed & Breakfast business for 7 years (a bit different to Economics at Warwick)!
On returning to the UK in 2013 I sought employment back at the university, and after working in WBS and Sociology, I re-joined Economics in 2017.
Having enjoyed the role of Joint Degrees Coordinator for the last few years, I am delighted to have now become one of the department’s Student Wellbeing and Progression Officers.
I very much hope that I will see many more students enjoy undergraduate life in the department and will be here to support them throughout their journey.
