Woman smiling

I currently oversee the delivery of Foundation Year and Business Management courses at Bloomsbury Institute. I am also a Programme Leader for our Advance HE accredited framework, In-Bloom.

Before joining Bloomsbury Institute over three years ago, I worked at several higher education institutions, including University College London, King’s College London and the University of Birmingham.

I studied English and Economics at The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland, and I have a Master’s degree in English Philology, with a teaching specialisation that has afforded me QTS status. I have broad experience teaching Business subjects at various levels, English for Academic Purposes and academic skills courses.

Interests

My areas of interest include Widening Participation, academic integrity matters, technology-enhanced learning, and Shakespearian drama. In my spare time, I love watching Peppa Pig and exploring theme parks with my 4-year old daughter!
