I am a very experienced Assessor Coach in various standards. I hold an A1 Assessors Award, Moderators Award and V1 Verifiers Award as well as my Certificate in Higher Education.

My passion is coaching management from delivering Level 5 and Level 3 Team Leader & Supervisor courses, including Women in Leadership.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, listening to music, dancing, reading and socialising with friends but my biggest passion is food, be it eating food, watching food being cooked, planning food I’m going to eat – I love it. I am obsessed with ‘Masterchef’ and love to watch it with a mini cheese board.

I am friendly and outgoing and love to help to support people to succeed.
