I studied business in Cardiff University, and then worked in accountancy practice, gaining both the AAT and ACCA finance qualifications along the way. I joined Cardiff Met in 2002 to work in the Finance department, and then moved to work in the School in 2007. Since then I have undertaken various finance/HR related roles in the School and have been in my current role since 2013.
