After training and specialising in Family Protection with Dyfed Powys Police, I left the Police Force in 1996 to set up a large day nursery, which I continue to be responsible for and involved in all aspects of early years care. Having completed the Early Years Education BA degree programme through the flexible learning route in 2004, I joined the School of Early Years in 2005, initially as a part time lecturer.

In 2006, I joined the School as a full time member focussing on Child Protection issues in addition to Leadership and Management modules. I was also coordinator of the H.E.Certificate in Nursery Management. I am currently a part time member sharing my time between the university and my childcare business where I employ 20 members of staff. In 2013, I completed a Training for Trainers course at the NSPCC headquarters and am currently working towards becoming an accredited Safeguarding Consultant.
