She moved into substantive senior roles in Human Resource Management from private into public sector organisations specialising in employee relations and legal case work activities before embarking on a career change in teaching.
I have been a Human Resources Manager in both public and private sector organisations which have provided me with a wide range of personal opportunities which make my teaching relevant and real.
