Receptionist (Anna Watts Building)
I am based in the Anna Watts Building on the Radcliffe Observatory site, covering morning reception duties. I've worked in administration and events management in both of Oxford's Universities, plus Oxford City Council, Thames Valley Police (in a civilian capacity!) and the local private sector.
My duties include working with other members of the Department's professional support team and I am very much enjoying meeting participants and assisting researchers with their valuable experimental research.
I'm an Alumna of Oxford Brookes University (HND in HCIM) and took advantage of the government's offer of free IT training at the turn of the century (!) to add City and Guilds qualifications in Windows Office programmes to my CV.
My interests outside work include doing Yogalates, going for long countryside walks and playing in a local ladies darts team.
My profile photo was taken in Paris, where my husband and I visit regularly on a romantic pilgrimage as we were married there in 2006, while he worked in the city.
