Summary of current role
I currently provide postgraduate students at the University of York with advice on academic and welfare issues such as appeals, misconduct, exceptional circumstances, complaints, supervisor issues and leave of absence.
I joined the GSA in May 2021 from Kent Union (at the University of Kent) where I worked as the academic lead adviser. I also supported students on a number of other topics such as housing, finance and student visas. Previous to that, I worked at the University for the Creative Arts Students’ Union as the Advice and Representation Coordinator where I oversaw the Course Rep system and provided academic advice for, HE, UG and PG students on all four of their campuses.
In my spare time I enjoy playing paintball (although it has been a while and I am definitely now out of shape!), visiting areas of natural beauty, museums/galleries, historic sites, wine, Fortnite (shhh) and I have a fascination with zombie popular culture.
