I am course leader for BA Publishing with English, and module leader for PU4002 Publishing in Context, PU5003 Contemporary Critical Issues in Publishing and PU6001 Publishing in Practice. I also teach on the MA Publishing and Media Studies courses. Prior to joining the Publishing team, I was a member of the Kingston MA industry advisory panel and the external examiner for the MA Publishing programme.
As a practising industry professional, I have held board level positions within major UK publishing houses, including Hachette UK, Harlequin Mills & Boon, Egmont and Reed Elsevier, specialising in international sales and marketing, PR and communications, and operations and supply chain. Alongside my teaching at Kingston, I work as a publishing consultant, most recently managing the GDPR data privacy implementation project for the Hachette Group.
Through my work in the juvenile/educational publishing sectors, I have a particular engagement with improving literacy, and sat on the publisher committee of the Reading Agency for 10 years from its launch in 2006.
