After gaining her NNEB qualification worked in Early Years for many years as an early years practitioner, working her way through the ranks to become a coordinator of a work based nursery, and then a Manager of a children’s centre, which was part of a research project to introduce High/Scope to the sector. More recently she has been a college lecturer before moving to the University of Greenwich. She now has a research focus on leadership and mentoring in the early years and is near completion of her research on ‘Maids or Masters: A study reviewing the concepts of leadership in early years provision in Malaysia and England.
