Qualifications

MA Creative Writing, University of Plymouth
BA (Hons) Film Studies, Falmouth College of Arts

I joined Plymouth University in April 2009 providing administrative support for SERIO in Research and Innovation. I have held web and digital posts, across faculties, in External Relations since January 2011. This involved the development and maintenance of web and digital information (external website and intranet) for key corporate areas, co-ordinating the website home page content, uploading SIA digital screen requests and providing guidance and support to colleagues when required. I have relevant skills and experience in editorial and creative writing and digital marketing - plus a thorough knowledge of the new website content management system (CMS). 

Prior to joining the University I worked in web and marketing roles for the Plymouth Guild and a new media company, where I gained experience in writing and maintaining digital content, design and marketing across a number of different platforms.
