I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England & Wales (ICAEW), having trained as a chartered accountant with PwC, working for many years in their Forensic Services teams both in the UK and Australia. I then spent time as an internal auditor at Tesco before joining the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) as a technical specialist, where I focused on fraud risk management, responsible business and sustainability. During my time at CIMA, I gained external recognition as an expert in my areas of specialism and was involved in producing a number of publications and invited to speak at conferences and events. I am editor of a book on Fraud Risk Management, have a chapter in a book on Managing Climate Risk and have been cited in various publications, including the Financial Times, Excellence in Leadership, Finance Director and Sustainability Today. On leaving CIMA, I consulted for the ICAEW on a short-term Sustainability project and then moved into the banking sector, working in the Fraud Risk team at Barclays for a number of years.
I joined the Leeds University Business School as a Senior Teaching Fellow within the Accounting and Finance department in 2018 and achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in 2021. I am Head of 2nd Year for Accounting & Finance and Banking & Finance undergraduate students and also have the role of Academic Personal Tutor and Work Placement Tutor. I primarily teach Financial Accounting, Forensic Accounting and Commercial Skills subjects, teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I am also the Sustainability Blueprint Champion for the Accounting and Finance department.
