I completed my MSc in Library Science whilst working as a Graduate Trainee in the House of Commons Library in London. After qualifying, I took on an Assistant Librarian role at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). I have worked abroad in International schools in the Middle East as School Librarian and have also worked as an Academic Service Librarian at Newman University, Birmingham.
My professional interest is to bring reading, books and information to all, but especially to those who may feel marginalised and feel it is out of their reach. I am keen on opening access to information and literacy as I believe reading and education have exponential benefits for all.
