BSc (Hons) Environmental Science (University of York), PGCE Secondary Science (Biology) (University of York), First Aid at Work
I have always had a keen interest in the natural world, spending much of my childhood on a farm in the dales or fishing with my grandparents. Graduating from the University of York with a degree in Environmental Science, helped to broaden my knowledge of both laboratory and field techniques for studying the biosphere.
After leaving university I developed a passion for teaching after volunteering as a School Geography Ambassador with the RGS as well as working as a Teaching Assistant. I then returned to York and completed a PGCE in Secondary Science, specialising in Biology at A-Level. I joined the Cranedale Centre in 2011 as a Field Studies Tutor, a role which allowed me to unite both my enthusiasm for the environment with my passion for working alongside and teaching young people.
In 2018 I was fortunate enough to be promoted to Head of Centre at the Cranedale Centre, a role which I feel very proud to hold. I am very lucky to work with such a fantastic team of people who are all so very committed towards the Centre’s aims and aspirations. During my spare time I am a beekeeper with the BBKA, a Member of The Magic Circle and enjoy spending time in nature with my family.
