My Biography

I gained my interdisciplinary doctorate in Old English and Celtic studies with UCC in 2007. My studies gave me insights into oral literacy and how it shaped and informed the western literacy tradition.

I have worked in adult education for 21 years in various sectors with a focus on adult literacy work for the past 12 years. During my time as an ETB tutor, I designed and delivered various ESOL (English as a Second Language), literacy and family literacy courses. I also delivered components of the Initial Literacy Tutor Training course and was a tutor on the Refugee Resettlement Programme.

In 2020, I joined the Distance Learning team in the National Adult Literacy Agency and later that year was appointed the family literacy project worker on NALA’s Marking Progress project. This project aims to support participating ETBs to implement the guidelines and recommendations in the Family Literacy Practices in ETBs: Guidelines, Case Studies and Recommendations report.

I am also a former student of WIT and  was delighted to join the Literacy Development Centre  team in August 2021.
