What job/study are you doing right now and tell us a little about it?

I'm currently studying a Masters in Marketing and Public Relations at the University of Central Lancashire.

Did you do any further/higher education?

After St Cuthbert's I furthered my study at Carmel College. I then chose to study BA (Hons) Business and Marketing at the University of Central Lancashire and graduated with a first class honours in 2015.

How did you decide on your career path and what is/was most interesting about your work?

I thoroughly enjoyed my business option at St Cuthbert's which made me choose Business at Carmel College. I realised I enjoyed the marketing side most and the course at UCLan really interested me.

Can you share a couple of fond memories of your time at St Cuthbert's?

I remember heading down to London with the senior team which was great fun. So many memories of St Cuthbert's and made friends for life.

Did you have a favourite/influential teacher? What made them so important to you?

Ms Walker from the business department made me realise I enjoyed business which helped me shape my future career choice. Mr Atherton was Head of Hope House and he was a great teacher. My form tutor Mrs Gifford always believed in me.

What advice would you give our current students?

Enjoy it!
