Welcome to my website…
You can find my full CV here
I am currently Executive Director (maternity cover) for Deafinitely Theatre, a National Portfolio Organisation funded by Arts Council England.
I am also working on a short term contract with Consortium, looking at more than 400 groups’ experiences across Intersectionality/ies.
I was the Deputy Director for Children, Young People and Partnerships at the National Deaf Children’s Society (2007-2018). After travelling South America for 8 months I returned in early 2019 and worked for UK Deaf Sport for a year as Project Manager.
I am the Chair of Deaf Rainbow UK, a charity for Deaf people who are also LGBT+.
I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield back in 2002, which looked at social-cognitive development.
Lots of colleagues and interested parties often ask me about my research work, to which I thought it would be best to share via my website with my publications and interests. It is my belief that exposure to conversations are imperative to children’s development.
I have also included some of the presentations I have made. These are not only my academic studies, they include some past political talks with respect to Deaf people and British Sign Language.
