Role and professional background
I am delighted to have joined Corvinus University to head international student recruitment. I will be responsible for increasing the diversity of students on campus and attracting high calibre applicants from Europe and internationally to help us achieve our long-term strategic goals.
Prior to Corvinus, I spent eight years working in higher education in the UK, principally in senior management roles, leading admissions, marketing and student recruitment teams. I’ve played key roles in international partnerships and accreditations.
I also very much enjoy teaching. I am accredited as an Advance HE Associate Fellow and have taught undergraduate Business Management. I specialise in Marketing and Project Management.
Hobbies and interests
I am originally from London – I love the diversity of my home city. However, I enjoy travelling and have been fortunate enough to do this through my work – doing business in almost 20 countries. I am new to Budapest and Hungary and very much looking forward to exploring the country, food and culture, and making new friends!
