Personal Experience & Biography

Areas of expertise and interest

I have experience in designing and implementing solutions for assessment, selection and development, to support organisations with key talent challenges. My expertise spans quantitative and qualitative methodologies, alongside areas such as team leadership, stakeholder interviews, situational judgement test (SJT) design, focus groups, psychometric feedback, and bespoke reporting. I enjoy translating science into clear, pragmatic insights for my clients, making occupational psychology accessible and demonstrating its value to different audiences.

Exciting projects I am currently working on

Having recently joined Work Psychology Group, I have taken the lead on the exciting SJT item bank offering, with a focus on improving awareness of the benefits of SJTs in sectors where objective, realistic assessments are less familiar, and contributing to the continual improvement of the bank. I am also leading on several client projects, including the annual development of a high stakes selection tool in dental medicine.

What I can’t live without

It would have to be my family (toddler, husband, two needy cats), though to balance out the chaos my garden is top of the list too.

What I would happily live without

Very windy weather – so annoying on multiple levels!
