Barbara is a Lecturer in the School of Management, teaching mainly HRM and Leadership & Management topics. She is currently the year tutor for third year students studying the BA Business and Management programme.  This means that she is responsible for supporting students with queries related to their academic studies or performance and is able to refer students who need further pastoral care or support.

After many years working in the banking and finance sector and a short stint running her own business, Barbara undertook her PGCE in 2007/8 and began working as an hourly paid lecturer for a number of Universities across Wales.

Barbara participated in the Elevate programme at Cardiff Met, University of Wales Newport and at Trinity Saint David's.  This was a programme targeting non-traditional workplace learners, designed to offer modules at HE level, but delivered within the workplace.

She took up a full-time position here at Cardiff Met in September 2014.  Barbara is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and of the Institute of Leadership & Management. She is an Associate Member (Academic) of the CIPD. She also holds a post-graduate diploma in Special Educational Needs (Specific Learning Difficulties).​
