I have worked at LSHTM since December 2006. Since 2008, I worked as PA to Professor Tom Meade, who is now retired, but for whom I continue to work one day a week. 

Since 2016 I have worked as Personal Assistant to Professor Neil Pearce assisting him and his colleagues on various research projects which include research on the analyses of Covid-19 data and studies on asthma phenotypes (WASP), BRain health and healthy AgeINg in retired Rugby players (BRAIN) and HEalth and Ageing Data IN the Game of football (HEADING).

When not at work, I spend most of my time guiding my two teenage girls. 

Voluntary: I am actively involved in various voluntary community projects.
