I am a farm and equine business management specialist with a passion for ensuring that the students that I teach understand how to run a business which they enjoy and which generates sufficient profits to be financially sustainable.
I come from a farming family and studied agriculture as my first degree. Prior to coming into education, I worked as a farm business consultant providing technical and financial advice to farming clients across the south of England. Whilst I enjoy all types of farming, my particular interest is in dairy farming.
My role at the RAU involves teaching farm business management modules to students at levels 5, 6 and 7. In addition I am the programme manager for the MBA in Advanced Farm Management.
As well as my teaching, I am involved in delivering professional training courses to a range of external clients and I am the co-course director of the Worshipful Company of Farmers' Advanced Course in Agricultural Business Management (ACABM).
