I am a professionally qualifed accountant, with a first degree in music and a masters in the Development and Application of Information Systems. I have some 26 years experience working at the University, in different roles in Finance Division after an initial appointment to Internal Audit. Previously I have worked at the Milton Keynes Development Corporation, Greater London Council and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
My other role at the University is as Chair of the Open University Orchestra, which has recently celebrated its 10th Anniversary. I also help promote chamber music in the University, and help organise groups when live music is required for conferences and University functions.
