Business Change Manager

IT Product Development and Delivery (Technology & Information Services)



I am a Business Change Manager working within Technology and Information services as part of the Student Record System (SRS) project. My role is key in ensuring that the people at the University are supported through this significant change by understanding their use of the system and the related processes. 

I have a particular interest in the areas of engagement and communication as well as process review and process or service design. I firmly believe in honest and open communication to support progress and decision making based on data and facts, including the experiences of colleagues and students. 


The University of Plymouth is the sixth university that I have worked for giving me a good, rounded knowledge of the sector and opportunities for networking. 

I have a 2.1 from Sheffield Hallam University in Media Studies with Professional Writing. 

As part of my time at the UoP, I have completed the ILM programme in Leadership and Management. 

I have recently (2022) qualified as a Certified Change Practitioner with Prosci. 

Roles on external bodies

I am the Lead Patient Representative for the MySunrise App which helps cancer patients in the South West to understand more about their diagnosis and what to expect from their treatment. 

I am also a Patient Representative for the Peninsula Care Alliance. 




In 2021 I published 'My Big Toe Is Killing Me' - the story of my battle with skin cancer. This has been stocked by the University Library and recommended by Nursing lecturers at the University as a good resource for students to use to gain insight in to the patient perspective. The book is available from .
