Tell us a little bit about your background:

My background is actually in communication and marketing – I came to RGU in 2005 (that seems like absolutely ages ago!) and studied Corporate Communication. The course has since changed names, but covered aspects such as marketing, press release writing and lots of other subjects which now exist in the Fashion Management course, such as Women in the Media and Postmodern Culture.

When did you start working at RGU? Have you always been a lecturer? 

I was initially offered a temporary position at RGU which focused on Customer Relationship Management, and I’ve found myself working at the university ever since! In 2012, I began working in a marketing capacity – I helped with marketing for the Business School which involved promoting the Fashion Management undergraduate and postgraduate course. A couple of years later, I landed my dream job as a Fashion Management lecturer. I have gone on to contribute to many modules such as Fashion Retail and Store Design, Managing in the Creative Industries and the annual Fashion Show!Screen Shot 2016-11-21 at 16.33.18.png Continue reading
