With over 20 years of experience as a senior teacher, creative technologist and STEM programme manager, I’m a strong advocate of improving girls’ and women’s opportunities in Computing and Technology.

After qualifying as a Technology teacher in secondary education I became a SENCO and senior leader in an 11-18 setting in Leeds. I then took a change in career direction with a national role focused on teacher professional development programmes with Ed Tech, during which time a part-time sabbatical research assistant post ignited my passion for academic research into maker education in schools. 

During 2017 I launched the Foundation for Digital Creativity, with another co-founder who encouraged me to pursue my dream of becoming a post graduate researcher. I’m excited to be broadening my professional understanding and educational impact around an inclusive topic threaded through previous teaching roles and latest projects.

Current and completed digital making programmes and activities include thingQbator Manchester, Connected Hull, the @JamPackedUK tour and leading the Raspberry Jam community in Leeds.
