I grew up in East Sussex, moving to Devon in 1998 for an undergraduate degree at the University of Exeter. Having gained a BA (Hons) in English with Medieval Studies (Dean's Commendation) in 2001, I fell in love with the south-west and stayed on to complete first an MA (Dist.) in English Studies and then a PhD ('Empire of the Imagination': Victorian Popular Fiction and the Occult), for which I was lucky enough to receive funding from Exeter's School of Arts, Languages and Literatures.
Having led the University of Exeter's experiential route to HEA Fellowship for several years as Senior Academic Developer, I now work as a Senior Lecturer in Education Practice at Exeter, with a focus on supporting academic development and writing in all forms, from MA and PhD supervision to facilitating structured writing retreats for academic colleagues. I'm also interested in inclusive education and neurodiversity.
I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice, two wonderful daughters, and three tyrannical cats.
