Subject responsibility/role overview:
I support the Kent Law School as the Law librarian. I am also the Faculty Librarian for Social Sciences and have a strategic lead for engagement.
What was your earliest ambition:
I wanted to be a racing driver when I was very small but didn’t learn to drive until I was 29 and the thought of driving that fast is terrifying now.
Best professional moment/achievement:
I have two best moments. Firstly I’m very proud of becoming faculty librarian and following in the footsteps of a library legend Anna Miller who was here at Kent almost from the start of the University. Secondly, before coming to Kent I was the systems librarian at the Law Society where I created the Law Society Library Twitter account. This now has over 2,000 followers and they are still following the pattern of tweets I started including the Friday question. If you want a challenge on a Friday follow them @LSlawlibrary.
What new thing/s will you be trying for 2020:
I’ve recently taken up running so I will be entering a few races for the first time this year. My first race is the London Winter Run 10K for CancerResearch.
A book you have enjoyed recently:
I really enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine really funny and moving.
Do you have any hidden talents:
I can play God Save the Queen on the recorder through my nose – is that treasonous?!
Do you cook, if so signature dish:
Does cake count as a signature dish? If so then chocolate cake.
