I graduated in 2000 with a BA (Hons) in Product + Furniture Design from Nottingham Trent University as a mature student after raising children and experience in Adult Nursing in my native country Germany.

During my ‘Sandwich Year’, I completed an adult education qualification to teach at college level. This led to a post-graduate course in Design Technology to teach secondary students.

I now focus on Art + Design related courses, connecting areas of Art, Craft and Design to STEM subjects offered at the GPUTC. The aim is to enhance career opportunities.

I have six children; my youngest is currently in Y13 and about to embark on a medical science degree.
