I joined the Department of Earth Sciences in April 2018 as Executive Assistant to the Head of Department, Professor Chris Ballentine, and Personal Assistant to the Departmental Administrator, Ian Wright. 

My first role with the University of Oxford was in 2012, at the Nuffield Department of Population Health, where I spent 6 years as PA to Professor Dame Valerie Beral, Principal Investigator of the Million Women Study. 

I have enjoyed a varied career as a personal assistant, office manager, book keeper and events manager. Before joining the University, I was Personal Assistant and Estate Secretary to Jemima Khan.  Prior to this I was Personal Assistant to the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire and the Chairman of Oxfordshire County Council.  I also spent 5 years in Cyprus as PA to the Assistant Director of SSAFA Forces Help.
