I am a Pedagogy Specialist and Curriculum Author.

I have worked as a Trouble-shooter and Education Consultant to nurseries and independent settings, as well as providing advice and support to Elective Home Education families.

I have many years of experience in Inclusion and SEND provision. As a course provider I have trained professionals and new learners in Montessori Education, Outdoor Learning and SEND, and written well-received online courses covering a wide range of subjects. I have hands-on experience in Steiner settings, Forest School and outdoor learning. I have supported mainstream settings, as well as those inspired by Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Froebel. I am very experienced in adding value to independent schools and nurseries.
