I lead the team responsible for building the reputation of the Quadram Institute Bioscience and for supporting public engagement for the institute.
After graduating from the University of Aberdeen with an MA (Hons) in English, my first career was as a news journalist on daily newspapers before moving into public relations more than 20 years ago.
I started my public relations career with Aviva and then Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Money. After five years in financial services, I went on to spend nearly 10 years heading up an award-winning communications team at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
I’ve joined the Quadram Institute from my previous role as Head of Corporate Communications at the University of East Anglia where I helped lead communications and alumni teams that delivered award-winning campaigns for UEA and its partners and more than doubled the university’s international media coverage.
I am a Chartered Practitioner and full member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
