After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in geology from the University of London I worked in the oil industry for a couple of years.
For a number of years, I worked in the Drawing Office at UCL. I returned to study taking a Masters in Applied Marine Science at Plymouth Uni. After that I worked at the National Marine Aquarium and then at the Environment Agency (Tidal Water Quality group).
I started at the MBA in 2002, first with MarLIN, then as MBA Communications Officer.
We started The Marine Biologist magazine in 2013. I began working full-time on the magazine with the Membership Team in 2020.
